    Common challenge

    Cities and densely built areas in the 2 Seas must adapt to more frequent intense rainfall and increased risks of urban flooding. Traditional public investments in drainage and sewage infrastructure cannot solve this challenge due to financial and spatial constraints. Local (water) authorities must resort to alternative, innovative solutions that integrate smart adaptation features in public and private spaces and buildings across their territory. Moreover, local stakeholders must become prominently involved in the implementation of those adaptation measures in and on their own properties.

    Main Achievements

    The SPONGE 2020 project has now finished 4,5 year of territorial cooperation. In contrast of the end date above, the partnership expects to finish on 31 December 2020. The partnership still consists of 10 partners and 3 observers. The observers have taken a very small role during the project itself. For a cross border operation, this is a very large project.

    During the 2020 period, the final products and deliverables have been finished. Also, some improvements have been made in order to be able to conduct a social media campagne. This was necessary due to Covid-19.

    Overall interaction between partners is still very good, considering the large partnership. Due to Covid-19, there were no 'face-to-face' meetings possible. Also, we have had to cancel our plans for the Final Event.
