Adaptation to Climate Change
Waterwegen en Zeekanaal NV (W&Z) is searching innovative community solutions to create action plans for specific rivers containing flood defence actions, flood prevention actions and preparedness actions.
Creating tailor-made action plans for rivers to combat flood risks. The plans have to be supported by all stakeholders alongside the rivers.
Tailor-made action plans for specific rivers containing flood defence actions, flood prevention actions and preparedness actions
New strategies in which best fitted short term, middle long term and long term solutions are identified for each specific region to protect them from floods.
Neighbouring countries face similar problems. It is important to exchange experiences with other countries to find the best solutions that fit for each region. In this project W&Z focuses on a rain river, but what is the best way of dealing with a tidal river or coastal areas? We want to have demonstrations of the tailor-made action plans in different places so that the tools to create the most successfull action plans can be rolled out on other rivers in the future.
