to pay (WTP) and willingness to work (WTW) for the improvements. This paper discusses the practical opportunities for park management arising from the survey results. It provides specific suggestions that could be implemented using a hypothetical budget informed by park users’ willingness to pay and willingness to work, which reflect the social value of city parks. In the case of Westpark, willingness to pay and willingness to work values for potential improvements may help to prioritize future policy and management actions, as surveying can be an important

. Den Autoren des Buches von Patrick Devine-Wright gelingt der empirisch unterfütterte Nachweis, dass insbesondere bei der Akzeptanz der Grundstückseigentümer der neuralgische Punkt liegt. Lediglich Fördermittel und Marktanreizsubventionen dürften bei Weitem nicht reichen. Die Bücher sind aufgrund ihrer vielfältigen Beispiele zu intelligenten Maut-Systemen ( Road Pricing, High Occupancy Toll ), zur Finanzierungsbereitschaft der Eigentümer und Ressourcennutzer ( Willingness to Pay ) oder der Energiewende als soziale Aufgabe eine Fundgrube für Bodenpolitiker und

environment can methodically be dealt with by referring to the classical economic concept of the willingness to pay (see Donaldson 1990 ). Just as there one concludes on the benefit provided by a good from the willingness to pay of the demand side, the benefit provided by the built environment might be derived from the readiness for political and, after all, fiscal commitment. This way, it is possible to assume that with the political decision for providing the spatial-physical conditions for meeting basic existential needs a benefit and usefulness of the outcomes

the problem of scarcity. In order to be able to buy goods and services, payments must be made, which requires money. A scarcity of goods, including food in a disaster zone, is not in the first instance an indication of the vulnerability of the economic system. Through the price setting mechanism the economy reacts to the situation with a rise in prices. However, participation in the economic system requires an ability to pay. That is to say, without money and without the possibility of obtaining credit there is no ability to pay and thus no participation in the

that's when things get tricky. For instance, if a planner fulfils their 'officiai' tasks, it is very likely that, in the view of their superiors, a 'good' job is being done. This, of course, does not de facto make a planner indisputably 'good'. On the other hand, say a planner decides to bend the rules of formai planning to make it more enthralling and enhance citizen participation. People getting involved in the planning process will likely regard the planner as 'good' (as long as they're not paying lip service), whereas other stakeholders may not be as content. For

Challenges for Spatial and Urban Planning in Dealing with Vulnerability

more willing to pay for such additional protection—irrespective of the question as to whether poorer households would also be able to afford it. Fig. 3 Insured households in selected urban districts in Cologne; correlation between household income and insuran ce. (Source: Own figure based on Birkmann/Krings/Vollmer et al. (2011 : 126 and 167)) Although the above indicator has no direct link to spatial planning, it does, however, illustrate precisely that exposure alone is not sufficient to characterise vulnerability to floods or climate related hazards

collectivités territoriales (Loi RCT): exposé des motifs. The population breakdown confirms the fast implementation, integrating inhabitants in groupings of higher categories ( Figure 3 ). Whether citizens will actually pay less tax appears dubious, and whether they will benefit from better services is uncertain. The Association of French Communities fears that “XXL communities” will be difficult to manage, they will increase the distance between the administration and the end-user, and local identities will be diluted ( ADCF 2016 : 29).
