"Municipalities as integrators and coordinators
in adaptation to climate change"

Pond from drops in Ruzsa

We are nearly at the end of the investment of a cleaned drinking water’s decanted water artificial reservoir in the Dózsa park, downtown Ruzsa. The multi-tiered bottom, the deliberate ecologically designed lake bed slowly fills up with water. The environment around the lake will also be recreated:  the planting begins, the small cooking area is also designated and a BMX field is being created to meet the needs of young people. We would like to create a new community space in the town, which allows residents to spend their free time in the spirit of sustainability, water saving and adapting to climate change. Moreover, it would be a replicable model solution for other municipalities as well. Here on the Sand Plateau of the Danube–Tisza interfluve water is a treasure. So it is extremely important in this area that we retain water in the settlements in any form, with innovative and ground-breaking solutions, rethink water management and moving on this path.
