With an intensive expert knowledge exchange on best practice examples, the 33rd Oldenburg Pipeline Forum made a contribution to protecting the population from the effects of extreme weather events. Around 3,500 guests attended the profession’s largest research event in Germany with over 400 exhibitors and multiple series of lectures.

Dr. Michael Janzen and Julia Oberdörffer from the OOWV presented the current results of the CATCH pilot Oldenburg with the title "Pluvial flood hazard map for Oldenburg - communication as a basis for water sensitive city development”. After the lecture the OOWV CATCH team informed at the stand about CATCH and had interesting discussions about the perspectives of urban development and how cities become more water sensitive.

Mike Böge from iro Oldenburg gave a lecture with the title "CATCH - dealing with heavy rain as a European joint project". He put a special focus on the concepts of the individual European pilot cities and on the development of the web-based decision support tool.
