Over the past few years there have been more and more rain events which have led to flooding and general chaos in people’s lives. Auckland had a massive 76.8mm of rain in an hour last Monday. This will become the new norm as the planet continues to heat up.
In some cities they have started addressing this by:
- Designing floodable pocket parks.
- Having biophilic infrastructure and sponge city concepts.
- Using rainwater as a resource.
- Promoting ecological net-gain.
Here are some photos of how some cities are addressing these international challenges. Let’s collect what we are doing. Can somebody send me examples for us to publish?
