About LIFE UrbanAdapt
LIFE Urban Adapt is working on:
- An increased risk of flooding due to intensive rainfall and rising sea water levels.
- Elevated temperatures caused by the urban heat island effect (UHI).
- Damage to flora and fauna on land and in water.
Rotterdam is a forerunner in the field of climate adaptation and in 2001 was the first major European city with an EU-approved climate strategy. The elaboration of this strategy is already visible in several small-scale public locations, such as the water squares.
From 2013, the Rotterdam Adaptation Strategy (RAS) will chart the course along which we will adapt to climate change. Implementation of measures in the city is progressing steadily, but in order to make great strides, climate adaptation must be integrated on a larger scale. This requires commitment not only from the municipality, but also from residents, companies and other social organisations.
