厦门:建设适应气候变化的海绵城市

As one of the pilot “sponge cities,” Xiamen has made significant progress in developing climate-resilient and sustainable solutions to water-related issues that have arisen from rapid economic development and climate change. CRR’s case study details Xiamen’s unique experience in building and financing an ecology-friendly and sustainable water system. The city has incorporated nature-based solutions to help water fulfill a natural cycle of storage, conservation, usage, and release, without waterlogging the area or disrupting the city. There are plans to export and replicate the Xiamen model elsewhere in China, incorporating specific local conditions best-suited to each city.

在经济迅速发展和气候变化的背景下,厦门作为第一批海绵城市试点之一,尝试以可持续的、具有气候弹性的手段探索水问题的解决方案。厦门致力于构建一个生态友好的、可持续的水系统,并在融资方面具有独特经验。CRR案例集对此进行了详细研究。厦门结合基于自然的解决方案(NBS),使城市中的水实现“储存、保护、使用、释放”的循环,而不会淹没区域或扰乱城市运转。中国其他地方可以借鉴厦门模式;不同城市可结合当地特殊情况,因地制宜地采用。
