This is Misagh Mottaghi’s PhD project. Misagh is an industrial PhD student at Sweden Water Research and doing her PhD at the Department of Architecture and Built Environment at Lund University.
Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.
We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

ÖReWise's main purpose was to form the basis for the development and implementation of solutions in climate adaptation with a focus on a holistic view for the region.
Urban flooding is an increasing problem, both in Sweden and in the world. One reason is climate change, but the main reasons are that our societies are not designed to handle extreme downpours. It is also unclear which public bodies are responsible for minimizing the risks.
REWAISE is one of five innovation projects supported by the Horizon 2020 framework program. The goal is to reduce the use of drinking water and use water in a smarter and more efficient way.
In this project, doctoral student Laura Giese is looking into how effective the educational activities are and how they can be developed to attract both boys’ and girls’ interest in a career within the water sector.
The project aims to collect and analyze different types of urban landscapes which are capable to adapt to climate change. The project concentrates on urban landscape and the opportunities it offers to cities in overcoming the water challenges. The focus is gaining more knowledge on design based techniques to make the cities more sustainable and resilient towards climate changes and the consequences.
