Prof Catalina Turcu

Catalina Turcu

Expertise
Cities expert

"Addressing climate change in cities remains largely a social and political challenge not a technical fix. My research looks at tensions and synergies between climate change and wider sustainability goals, with current focus on climate adaptation in cities, in relation to: (1) measures and solutions in vulnerable urban communities and ecosystems; (2) implementation roadmaps for local government in cities; and (3) the governance of translocal networks in cities."
