SuDS in Sweden - Marianne Beckmann - Civil engineer M. Sc.

Marianne Beckmann  

Malmö has 25 years of experience of sustainable stormwater management. The time has come to look at the past, but also to the future. How does stormwater management affect society? What have we learned and how do we move on from here? What challenges lie ahead? The issues of climate change, densification of the city and environmental requirements will lead to even higher demands on the design, operation and function of stormwater facilities. How do we meet these challenges?

The Augustenborg neighbourhood might be the most well-known stormwater facility in Malmö, with visitors from near and far coming to see this retrofitted area from the 1950’s. A number of details from this project will be presented, as well as other examples from SUDS in Malmö.
