Cases of climate-adapted building - local planning
Local municipalities have important roles to play in supporting sustainable building. The building sector is locked because of lack of sufficient demand and innovativeness. The local governments have different instruments and have possibilities of formulating policies and setting demands for building and retrofitting. As building owners and area planners they can set up demands for building processes; they can integrate buildings in their energy planning; they can formulate climate and energy policies and initiate activities of many kinds. And local activities and organisations can be suppported by the local government, creating networks and bottom-up activities among citizens and local actors.
