Waternet is Committing to Climate Adaptation in the Metropolitan Region

How to design and transform the built environment in order to handle climate extremes?

The water company of Amsterdam Waternet is programme partner of WeMakeThe.City. At the festival, they focus on the huge task of including climate adaptation on a regional scale on the agenda.

Issues that will be key at the special conference of June 21 are: How to design and transform the built environment in order to handle climate extremes? Apart from the several water boards and regional municipalities, how can we get companies, societal organisations, and citizens involved in these urban tasks? In Amsterdam, a lot of experience on this topic has been gained through the programme Rainproof Amsterdam Рnow it is time to extend it to the region.
