Mobility, Climate Change, Governance

Projektbeschreibung

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. There is worldwide political consensus that the greenhouse effect is largely a result of human activities and that it is necessary to take action against this phenomenon over the next decades. In the transport sector, it will prove to be particularly difficult to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as the expected growth in transport volumes will outpace technological efficiency gains. Climate governance will thus become paramount in implementing low-carbon societies. The interdisciplinary research group at the FRIAS has a focus on linkages between mobility, climate change and governance. The main aim consists in thinking through and re-structuring this emerging field of research. Involving external experts and several partners at the University of Freiburg, a series of workshops will be held at the FRIAS to lay the ground for publications, research proposals and future cooperation.
