Building on the established collaboration between Swedish, Turkish and Dutch researchers from the first Urban-NET call, the aim of this proposal is to deepen the explorations of how to increase urban resilience through the integration of ecosystem services in urban spatial planning. As such the project strives to lay a foundation for innovations in urban planning and governance that enable cities to navigate change, build local capacity to respond to disturbance and to prepare for uncertainty, and thus to foster transitions to sustainable urban trajectories. In this second call in-depth case studies in four cities (Stockholm, Istanbul, Arnhem-Nijmegen and Cape Town), in combination with comparative cross-city projects, we aim to deliver detailed knowledge of value for practitioners in each city, as well as for scholars in the fields of urban resilience, governance and sustainability.
