Sustainable reconstruction of communities after flood events
Just recently, we had to learn what serious consequences climate change can have for us personally. One day of rain – and nothing is the same anymore. Experts believe that such heavy rainfall events will occur more and more frequently in the future. At present, affected communities are working on rebuilding their towns and villages. But how can future heavy rainfall events be taken into account now – directly during reconstruction – in order to keep the effects as low as possible? And how can the current situation help to draw the right conclusions and make the cityscape as a whole more sustainable?
– What measures must be taken so that the damage of future flood events is kept low?
– How can consequences for urban planning be drawn directly after flood events?
– Sustainable reconstruction – how can necessary sustainability aspects be directly considered during reconstruction (in general and in direct relation to possible future heavy rain events)?
– How can society be involved in the reconstruction process?
