Desarrollo de la gobernanza urbana resiliente al cambio climático en Bangladesh. Evaluación de la vulnerabilidad del impacto del cambio climático en ciudades intermedias y comprensión de la gobernanza local = Developing climate change resilient urban governance in Bangladesh. Vulneribility Assesment of Climate Change Impact in Intermediate Cities and Understanding Local Governance

MD Maruf Hossain, José Miguel Fernández Güell


Texto completo:




In this study five intermediate cities of Bangladesh as future populated urban centers have been investigated to formulate a comprehensive framework for climate resilient urban governance The conceptual framework adopted the modified structure of CRF model of S Tyler and M Moench (2012) incorporating Urban functional system, Local urban governance, and Climate resilience as major components. The cities have been conceptualized as a functional system to identify the climate change impact upon social, economic, environmental and political subsystems. The vulnerability assessment of climate change impact shows that the different level of risks caused by frequent climate hazards. The research initiates a resilience building process based on Mehta’s good governance (1998) through a shared learning dialogue (SLD) among stakeholders.
