Malmö, The Blue Green City. Climate adaptation with green infrastructure and sustainable stormwater management

In this tour we will look at nature-based solutions, such as green roofs, green walls, city trees and open stormwater systems that help make the city resilient and better adapted for the change in climate. During this in depth study we will discuss the challenges of the future, focusing on how cities will manage a hotter climate and heavy rainfall. The primary focus will be on systems that locally dispose of rainwater, including ponds, canals, raingardens, and how greenery can be used to supplement and enhance these systems. The tour will start in the EcoCity of Augustenborg where we will visit the areas most interesting stormwater solutions. During a heavy rainfall event in Malmö in 2014, these storm water systems helped to redirect the water to planned infiltration areas and prevent flooding in the Ecocity. This was one of the few districts in Malmö that was not severely impacted by the floods. Next, we will look at and discuss the open storm water systems in Västra Hamnen. Though this area has many similarities to Augustenborg there are also many differences which we will review and compare as we walk through the harbour.
