Report on flood risk in Amsterdam published

How can consequence reduction for flooding be included into new built housing developments in Amsterdam?

The report with the results of the first phase of the thematic study ‘waterveiligheid’, commissioned by and in collaboration with the City of Amsterdam and Waternet, is now available. We looked at the long-term impact of accelerated sea level rise and explored what this could mean locally, including a toolbox with measures on different scales to reduce the impact in case of flooding.

Currently we are working on the second phase of this study, where we have a closer look at the existing city and its vital and vulnerable infrastructure. The second phase will be available in the second half of 2022.

Curious? Have a look at the report.
