Rotterdam #1 in Sustainable Cities Water Index
Which cities are best placed to harness water for future succes? This research conducted by Arcadis is a must read for all water pioneers around the world.
Some of the findings are that ‘European cities lead the way on the overall sustainability of their water systems and management, holding seven of the top ten places, with Rotterdam, Copenhagen and Amsterdam taking the top three rankings. However the low placings of cities like London (21st) and Rome (28th) show that additional investment is needed elsewhere in Europe. Overall, cities need to make greater investment to improve their resiliency to extreme weather events and unforeseen water shortages.’
