Feasibility study: Implementing climate adaptation measures using blue and green infrastructures to support sustainable urban redensification in Bochum-Weitmar (Nach2Bo)
This study, which is funded by the housing sector and the Future Initiative “Water in tomorrow's city”, examines the use of blue and green infrastructure in the district.
In spite of the need to adapt to climate change, especially in cities, these concerns are often ranked below other challenges in municipal practice (creation of affordable housing, redensification). The real estate sector and the housing sector, in particular, represent important new players in this field: Redensification measures and measures to increase the energy efficiency of buildings provide fundamental windows of opportunity to realize climate adaptation measures in the housing stock.
This is where the Nach2Bo project starts and develops exemplary solutions together with the local authority and a housing association for an urban redensification district in Bochum.
