We are looking into the possibilities to translate the solutions to other parts of the world. It is highly important to share our knowledge, expertise and implementation.
INSPIRING CLIMATE-ADAPTIVE PROJECTS IN THE NORTHERN NETHERLANDS
To protect the land from the water, the sea dike between Eemshaven and Delfzijl must be reinforced in the coming years. Together with the Waterboard Noorderzijlvest, the Province of Groningen has developed a new type of dike: the double dike. This consists of a higher wall on the waterfront and a lower wall inland. In the intermediate area there is room for saline agriculture and aquaculture, such as the cultivation of shellfish and crustaceans. More information.
De Onlanden area
The construction of the large-scale water storage area De Onlanden in North Drenthe combines climate adaptation with nature, recreation and experience. In the event of extreme flooding, the area protects the south of the city of Groningen against flooding. The water management of the area moves with the seasons and provides rich, varied nature, under the name "Wet nature for dry feet". More information.
