As chair of the network ‘Water & climate’, 14 municipalities, regional safety & security authority, management governance board, I facilitate exchange of expertise on climate adaptation. We develop public spaces for multiple uses: retain water, green oases, recreation. In the city of Nieuwegein where 2000 new houses are built, we use the SDGs to bring together ambitions to strengthen biodiversity, circular building, clean public transport and circular water management.
