'water sensitive Cities: the Answer To CHallenges of extreme weather events'.

The overall objective of CATCH is to demonstrate and accelerate the redesign of urban water management of midsize cities in the North Sea Region in order to become climate resilient cities that are sustainable, liveable and profitable on the long term. 

We have developed the CATCH decision support tool to help midsize cities with guidance, insight and solutions into a suitable climate adaptation strategy.
