Rotterdam resiliency policies include floating neighborhood
The floating neighborhood will feature homes, offices, a school, a park, and a dairy factory.
The low-lying city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands is a world leader in storm resiliency with policies that impact businesses, private homes, and public infrastructure.
The resiliency initiatives include an underground parking garage with a basin the size of four Olympic swimming pools, and green areas including green roofs and green facades that will be able to absorb water.
The city is also building a floating neighborhood that will feature homes, offices, a school, a park, and a dairy factory. More are planned in future.
