The Delta City of the Future is a city where trained and educated people live: the people know about the threats, the local landscape realities and waterdynamics. They are fit for flood, they are Delta Urbanites.

High finances to provide infrastructural centralised safety cannot be raised anymore with the climate change. Besides new infrastructural solutions people have to become fit for flood.

The project fit for flood proposes spatial and social longterm program for the city of Hamburg. The project Fit for Flood suggests 12 low cost projects for the tidal city of Hamburg that help to become a Delta Urbanite.
