Jeroen Kluck (HvA)conducts research into climate adaptation in cities. “The major challenge for the coming years is the development of a city that is liveable and healthy all year round and that pays attention to biodiversity. Guidelines for climate resilience have been developed based on my research. Municipalities use these in redevelopment projects. If a street is to be overhauled, planners can see if there is room for a row of trees or a park nearby. Every redesign is along the bar of climate-resilient objectives. In this way, a city has completely changed in thirty years. And there are already municipalities and provinces that work like this.”
