About me

Next to climate mitigation in cities, the need to increase climate resilience and adapt to resulting risks like flooding or urban heat islands is becoming more and more pressing in many regions of the world. Apart from nature-based and technical solutions, also the right governance approaches and strategies are needed to address these issues. With regards to effective replication and uptake of best practices in the climate area, capacity building is one of the most successful levers and a key pillar within MGI.

I am very excited to support to the initiative in these two areas – assessing climate resilience and facilitating knowledge exchange – hoping that it will contribute to a more climate-friendly, resilient and livable future.
