Project

Development of sustainable and climate resilient urban storm water management systems for Nordic municipalities (LIFE UrbanStorm)

Description:

The main objective of the LIFE UrbanStorm project is to increase the climate resilience of Estonian municipalities, especially their ability to manage flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall. The project will facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches for climate change adaptation strategies and action plans, at  local, regional and national levels, prioritising, where appropriate, ecosystem-based approaches. The project will also focus on setting up an innovative complex storm water management system, which entails storm water collection and re-use. The demonstration site will be the focal point for engaging local inhabitants to promote the sustainable use of storm water and a change in water habits.
