Storms, sea level rise, and extreme drought are only predicted to accelerate in the decades ahead. Combined with unprecedented urban population growth, this unpredictable weather is a recipe for costly, life-threatening disaster in the world’s biggest cities. Rather than quibble about why climate change is occurring, the city of Copenhagen has decided to take action. The city recently unveiled a comprehensive Climate Adaptation Plan. Using both blue and green design strategies, the plan will prevent heavy rainfall from crippling infrastructure while increasing natural habitats within the city. The Climate Adaptation Plan is also one of only five prestigious INDEX: Awards winners, which were announced earlier this afternoon in Denmark!
