Rotterdam is a delta city par excellence. Due to its location on the River Meuse and the North Sea the city, port and region need to be protected by a network of water barriers. The Delta City Rotterdam app is a great way to explore the city while discovering the measures Rotterdam takes to protect itself against the ever present water: sea, river, rain and ground water. Unique hotspots let you discover the broad network of innovative solutions such as multifunctional dykes, water plazas and the Maeslant Barrier. Learn about the actions Rotterdam as a delta city takes to protect itself against flooding in a time where new challenges present themselves as a result of climate change. Smart spatial design and multifunctional solutions contribute to a more attractive and economically strong city. Discover how Rotterdam connects water with opportunities!

Now, with the Delta City Rotterdam app you can easily locate and visit the places and constructions that keep Rotterdam safe, dry and attractive. Additional information in the hotspots give you all the insight on how and why these measures work and how they are part of an integrated strategy for the entire city.

Background:

Over 50% of the world population lives in cities. By 2050 that will be 70%. More than two thirds of the world's largest cities are vulnerable to rising sea levels as a result of climate change. Millions of people are being exposed to the risk of extreme floods and storms.

Through its Rotterdam Climate Proof programme, delta city Rotterdam is working to give optimal protection to and ensure permanent access to the city and port, despite the effects of climate change. The ambitions and results achieved in the fields of the environment, climate, energy and water all contribute to an appealing and economically strong city and make Rotterdam a sustainable world port city.

Rotterdam is working together with Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, London, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York City, New Orleans and Copenhagen in Connecting Delta Cities. Connecting Delta Cities (CDC) is a network of delta cities that are active in the field of climate change related spatial development, water management and adaptation. In order to exchange knowledge on climate adaptation and share best practices that can support cities in developing their adaptation strategies, CDC has been set up in the framework of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40).
