Case IA Modelling for London: the Tyndall Centre UIAF (Urban Integrated Assessment Facility)

Description

This study developed an Integrated Assessment Modelling structure for London, combining sectoral economic analysis with transport demand analysis and environmental assessment for emissions and flood risk.
Adaptation and mitigation in cities requires integrated thinking that encompasses a whole range of urban functions, at spatial scales from individual buildings to whole cities. Meanwhile, mitigation targets, which are now being adopted by cities, imply major reconfiguration of urban energy systems, transport and the built environment. If conflicts between the objectives of adaptation and mitigation and, more generally, between urban growth and sustainable development, are to be avoided as far as possible then an integrated systems view of cities is required. The systems approach seeks to represent the interactions between different urban functions and objectives by linking climate change issues to broader policies such as spatial planning.
