dc.description.abstractIn reaction to the growing amount of heavy precipitation events, Amsterdam Rainproof was founded in 2014 to enhance local climate change adaptation in Amsterdam with regard to rainwater issues. Amsterdam Rainproof are initiating a pilot project in which they aim to create a local network consisting of the local government, residents and private organisations with the purpose of efficient rainwater adaptation. Their strategy is to stimulate local participation among the residents and private organisations in the Rivierenbuurt. This research will be a contribution to the Rainproof project, by studying the degree of awareness and sense of responsibility among the residents and local organisations, with regard to the rainwater issue, as well as the degree of residential participation and their expectations of the degree of government participation in the adaptation practices. The perspective of the local government and relevant private organisations will be studied in order to comprehend the local context. The purpose of the research is to find out how to stimulate the neighbourhood participation to improve local rainwater adaptation.en_US
