Community based climate adaptation

Community based climate adaptation

The Watergraafsmeer is an urban polder in the eastern part of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in which the challenges of our ever-changing world come together. Climate change, together with urban densification and a tightly dimensioned water system make it a huge challenge to keep the area liveable and future proof. The combination of population growth and the need for adaptation to climate change directly affects the quality of life in and around the city. We challenge you to create your own solutions and innovative ideas during Wetskills Water Challenge. Apply now to participate in the Wetskills Water Challenge to generate innovative and creative ideas: What is your vision on urban water in the world of tomorrow?
