Blue Urban Models: Building Climate-resilient Neighbourhoods
By 2050, an estimated 6.2 billion people or 70 percent of the global population will be living in cities. But the increasing climate risks in urban areas will have widespread negative impacts over people, economies and ecosystems, including health, livelihoods and assets. Action in urban centres is essential for successful climate change adaptation. Large-scale floating projects in an urban environment provide a tangible solution to these problems that is both flexible as well as sustainable.
