Urbanization is creating lots of challenges. Due to the large amount of concrete and asphalt they hold, drainage of heavy rain and heat stress are an increasingly prevalent problem. With more green spaces and the right management of rainwater, we can face this challenge, but space in the city is scarce. That’s why the RESILIO project has taken advantage of the unused space on the rooftops. Together with 8 partners, the municipality of Amsterdam has realized no less than 10,000 m2 of smart blue-green roofs in our capital city between 2018 and 2022.
RESILIO is an acronym for ‘Resilience nEtwork of Smart Innovative cLImate-adapative rOoftops’. The RESILIO project ran from 2018 until 2022 and was a collaboration between the municipality of Amsterdam, Waternet, MetroPolder Company, Rooftop Revolution, HvA, VU, Stadgenoot, de Alliantie and De Key. The project was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the European Unions’ Urban Innovative Actions Initiative. Read more about the partners.
In March 2022, the RESILIO Final Report ‘A Rooftop Journey’ was released. This report presents the research results and final conclusions of the project.
