This is what we know for sure: Climate change and its effects will continue to be a mission-critical issue for decades to come. And cities are feeling the heavy weight of this challenge. In the earlier video “I Am Your City”, Wavin has given cities a voice – expressing the challenges they’re facing and how they need us (the citizens) to make them ready for the future.
Climate adaption in cities is essential for us to survive. Together, we must create livable and lovable cities where we feel safe and at home. And that’s why every decision we make now is crucial to achieve urban resilience.
Click through our four solution pillars to read about the areas where Wavin can make a difference – with your collaboration – as like-minded customers, partners/alliances, stakeholders, and engaged citizens. We are all responsible for this planet. It is our home. Let’s make it future-proof. Together.
Safe and efficient water supply
Future generations face a 40% shortfall between their water supply and demand - so it's crucial to make every decision count if we want to reduce water leakage and water contamination in ageing pipes.
With a city replacing as little as 1% of its sewer pipes every year, it could take up to 100 years to renew a city's entire system. We need to think about the decisions we make when it comes to installing new sewage systems.
Extreme weather is putting pressure on our cities. A combination of extreme droughts and heavy rainfall in densely populated cities cause a number of serious environmental and social issues. Our challenge is to make every decision count in the search for long lasting solutions to climate change - and how cities need to adapt to these challenges.
Cities are feeling the heavy weight of the challenges to be climate-resilient and to deal with massive urbanization at the same time. In the video “I Am Your City”, we have given cities a voice – expressing the challenges they’re facing and how they need us (the citizens) to make them ready for the future.
