Today climate change and the effects of human activities will affect more and more citizens and industry living in coastal areas, flood prone areas or areas characterised by drought and desertification. Effects on the Water System and pressure on bio-diversity require regenerative developments and design based system thinking approach, as well as restoration ecology. Citizens together with cities and governments will need solutions to mitigate the risks and increase their resilience. Regenerative developments & design for coastal areas, integrated water management, climate & urban resilience, droughts & floods will come high on the agenda. Also here inclusion and participation of all affected social groups and sectors will be a valuable approach.
