Combining flood safety measures with other functionalities in urban areas

Delta cities, also metropolitan cities, want to grow, develop and improve quality of the city life. However, there is no space left. Rotterdam and Shanghai are such delta cities and are vulnerable for increasing precipitation, climate change and sea level rise. They need extra flood protection, but can not afford to lose space. The challenge is how to gain safety whitout losing too many space.
