Last October a Dutch trade mission to Vancouver and Toronto took place around the topic climate change resiliency. The event included several workshops, speakers and network events that relate to the challenges that both Canada and the Netherlands are facing to ensure liveable cities in the future. Some of these challenges include spatial planning, water management, storms, fire hazards, transit, soil remediation and social equity. None of these topics can be dealt separately and an integral approach is required.
