“…They can be found particularly frequently where there is a need for orientation regarding complex problems of overarching societal significance and where diverse knowledge and different opinions and views are to be integrated (e.g. Heinrichs et al 2012).

“…Partiendo del supuesto de que las condiciones de las vulnerabilidades existentes en un área segregada, desigual y que sufre alteraciones en los usos del suelo como resultado de la expansión urbana -que es el caso de la rms (Heinrichs, Krellenberg, Hansjürgens & Martínez, 2011)-, surge la siguiente pregunta: ¿cuáles son los grupos vulnerables a los impactos del cambio climático, y por qué? Siguiendo estas interrogantes, el artículo indaga en tres dimensiones que los estudios tratan frecuentemente en cuanto a la distribución espacial de las vulnerabilidades y en relación con los impactos del cambio climático: i) la dimensión socioeconómica; ii) la dimensión físico-constructiva, y iii) la dimensión urbano-rural.…”

“…Although known for its comparatively high coverage, efficiency and quality of service provision, Santiago faces acute environmental and social problems, as well as severe sustainability deficits and risks (e.g. Heinrichs et al, 2011)-in particular the city's notorious air pollution (Schmitz, 2005), a pronounced socio-spatial polarization of its inhabitants (Sabatini et al, 2001), accessibility problems (Ureta, 2008), urban sprawl (Heinrichs et al, 2009) and natural hazards such as earthquakes and floods (Ebert et al, 2010). In addition to these enormous challenges, Santiago is characterized by a particularly intricate administrative structure: the Santiago Metropolitan Area is composed of 37 municipalities.…”
