Urban Insight

Urban Insight is based on a series of insight reports written by Sweco experts. It is a long-term initiative with a different theme each year. The theme for 2018 is Urban Move, focusing on mobility and sustainable development of transports in Europe.

The report Transport revolution – the future of accessible public transport in urban areas investigates how we can make public transport accessible and useful for everyone by applying modern mobility solutions.

Climate change adaption

The climate of the future will be warmer and wetter than today’s. Higher temperatures and altered precipitation patterns will increase the risk for local water shortages and droughts during the summer season. Violent downpours often lead to flooding in urban areas and along lakes and rivers. These new conditions are creating a need for solutions that both reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate. Climate change adaption is aimed at keep society’s functions intact even when they are affected by climate change. Through proactive adaptation of our society, we can reduce the risks to human life and health and avoid runaway costs for damage. Sweco’s experts offer services that can contribute to reducing climate impact and increasing climate change adaption. Our experience ranges from small, local areas to adaptation of entire societies and major infrastructure projects.
