Why Rebuilding From War Can Lead To More Sustainable Cities

“Why can rebuilding from war lead to more sustainable cities?”

When cities are destroyed by war, massive amounts of infrastructure will have to be rebuilt. If engineers and planners are proactive, they can replace the older less-efficient makeup of the town with newer more sustainable ones. This can lead to long-term climate emissions reduction and higher-quality public health. One example comes from the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, which was completely rebuilt with modern infrastructure after its destruction in World War 2. Perhaps in the future cities such as Allepo and Mariupol can have the same benefits. This is Why Rebuilding From War Can Lead To More Sustainable Cities.

As a proud descendent of Jews from Odesa, I urge you to please do what you can to help Ukrainians under invasion right now here.
