The magazine in2science of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht published an interview on the practically oriented application of the GERICS Adaptation Toolkit for Citeies (Stadtbaukasten).

GERICS scientist Dr. Markus Groth provides advice on climate-adapted municipal development so that cities and communities don’t increasingly find themselves “swamped”. He turns to the GERICS-adaptation toolkit for cities for his work . This modular system is based on the current state of research knowledge and can be used flexibly while remaining focused on a specific city.

Bleckede, a city on the Elbe, is one of the first cities to be counselled by GERICS specialists on the topic of “water in the city”. Jens Böther, the mayor of this community, comprised of approximately ten thousand inhabitants in the Elbtalaue in Lower Saxony, speaks with Markus Groth about the results.
