"If we adapt our cities at an early stage and make them resilient against future crises, we stand a much better chance and there are also economic gains," says Johan Colding, Director of Urban Studio at University of Gävle. Examples of such jobs could be crop growing in cities and management of parks and wetlands that are needed in peri-urban landscapes. Maintenance of the highly endangered wetlands that were common in old agricultural environments is crucial to the survival of dragon flies, amphibians and other species that depend on freshwater ponds. Golf courses, which have many ponds, could be given support to create more resilient landscapes.
