EC-Link Technical Guideline for a Resilient Zhuhai
16 Mar, 2020

EC-Link Project has recently published a new set of technical guidelines pointing out how urban planning and urban design have a critical role in the global response to climate change.

Indeed, Climate change has already had significant influence on human and natural systems. It is generally accepted that even with substantial mitigation efforts and actions, adaptation will be necessary. Extreme weather will be the new normal and cities in low elevation coastal zones face the combined threat of sea-level rise and storm surges.

China has seen an increasing number of cities with inadequate flood-control measures during its fast-urban sprawl; on average, around 200 cities are faced with the problem of waterlogging caused by rain or storms.

To protect the city, Zhuhai seeks to identify the best practices of storm management, water management and urban resilience governance. With a coastline stretching 690 km and under the influence of tropical hurricanes during summer, the city is exposed to high risks of extreme weather disasters such as typhoon, heavy rainstorm and floods. 

EC-Link Project, together with selected International experts, collaboratively wrote a consulting report that showcases the European approach and shares new findings in the form of strategies and case studies. Under the request of Zhuhai Housing and Urban Planning Development, the Europe- China Eco-Cities Link (EC-Link) project supports with the revision of overall guideline for urban planning and city development in Zhuhai.

As highlighted in the paper, strategies for the sustainable development and growth of Zhuhai must integrate adaptation planning in order to reduce vulnerabilities to expected and unexpected impacts of climate change.
