31-07-12 As a decisive and innovative climate city, Rotterdam lives up to its responsibilities for the future. In an approach that focuses both on the causes and consequences of climate change, Rotterdam invests heavily in the comprehensive climate file, setting a unique and inspiring example for others to follow. The ambitions and results in the area of climate change, energy and water management contribute to a sustainable, attractive and economically successful city. • Rotterdam, its partners and inhabitants are committed to a better climate. Efforts and projects aim to achieve 50% reduction of CO2 emissions – mitigation. • Rotterdam focuses on permanent protection and accessibility of the city and port, despite climate change. Adaptation measures will lead to full climate change resilience by 2025 – adaptation. • The consequences of climate change include a rising sea level, river runoff changes, more extreme rain showers and periods of drought. • Innovative solutions are required to prevent nuisance. At the same time, this offers Rotterdam additional opportunities for an attractive and economically more successful city. The ambitions for the city as a whole are translated in ambitions for our developments currently taking place in the innercity of Rotterdam [gebiedsontwikkelingen]: Every development must result in a more child friendly, green, clean and healty environment. Every development must lead to added value and preparedness for the future [waardecreatie en toekomstbestendigheid] Every development must result in at least 50% CO2 reduction and 100% climate proof In reaching these goals we Collaborate with private parties and citizens Are responsible and approacheble for the results, and we communicate about ambitions and results.
31-07-12 As you see Rotterdam is facing challenges that are typical for compact cities and that offer opportunities. We are eager to learn from other compact cities especially those that face challenges that are comparable: delta cities combined with industrial area in the proximity. We are willing to play an active role in exchanging knowledge and information. I thank you for your attention
