Prof. Dr. Uli Paetzel
Heavy rainfall and urban restructuring: the example of the “climate-resilient region with international appeal” in the Ruhr area
“Climate change is a reality in German cities. Rising temperatures, longer dry periods and increasing heavy rainfall reduce the quality of life of the citizens and pose a serious problem for vegetation. Our presentation intends to show an implementation strategy for adapting to the impact of climate change in the Ruhr area. The strategy was developed together with the local water boards, municipalities and the government of North-Rhine-Westphalia.” Prof. Dr. Uli Paetzel, Chairman of the Board, Emschergenossenschaft und Lippeverband
