Urban Resilience for Risk and Adaptation Governance | Theory and Practice
Editors: Brunetta, G., Caldarice, O., Tollin, N., Rosas-Casals, M., Morató, J. (Eds.)
This book brings together a series of theory and practice essays on risk management and adaptation in urban contexts within a resilient and multidimensional perspective. The book proposes a transversal approach with regard to the role of spatial planning in promoting and fostering risk management as well as institutions’ challenges for governing risk, particularly in relation to new forms of multi-level governance that may include stakeholders and citizen engagement.

HIGHLIGHTING THIS ARTICLE:  A simple spatial typology for assessment of complex coastal ecosystem services across multiple scales Authors:Tim O’HigginsAntónio A.Nogueira & Ana I.Lillebø

This paper aims to present and demonstrate the applicability of a methodology to characterise supply and demand for ecosystem services (ES) on the basis of spatial properties and interdependence, and economic properties of ES. The typology is demonstrated to support inclusion of ES flow in social-ecological systems management. Ria de Aveiro coastal lagoon, Portugal, is used as a showcase for the proposed spatial typology for ecosystem services assessment across multiple scales.
