A test site for climate adaptation in Delft, full scale water retention squares and blue-green roofs in Rotterdam City: The Urban Resilience Excursion on 21stMay 2019 inspired cities and utilities from across Europe for climate adaptation in their own regions. Four new and innovative solutions for stormwater retention and purification, leakage prevention and smart sewer controls were presented and discussed during the Urban Resilience Technology Approval Group (TAG) meeting on 22nd May 2019. We thank VP Delta and the city of Rotterdam for hosting the Urban Resilience Excursion and TAG meeting.
The next Urban Resilience Excursion and TAG meeting will be 25th and 26th September 2019 in Milan, hosted by the Metropolitan City of Milan. The Urban Resilience TAG is looking forward to welcoming new cities and utilities that look for inspiration, knowledge exchange and innovative solutions to deal with Climate Change.
