Mangrove forests, which serve as a natural sea defence, have been degraded by human action during the last decades. To protect and recover these areas, different types of permeable structures consisting of bamboo have been proposed and applied. However, these structures are currently based on engineering judgement, as design rules are not...

Demak is a regency within the province of Central Java, Indonesia, with a mud-mangrove coast bordering the Java Sea. The region is facing a rapid retreat of the coastline, threatening the livelihood of a large part of the population. The main cause of the erosion is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves. This has disturbed the...

The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme events due to global warming and climate change is increasing flood risk. To act, rather than react, nature-based solutions (NBS) involving vegetation and wetlands are being explored on top of conventional solutions like dikes. WHY? There was a dire need for global study quantifying the potential...

Growth of world population, sea level rise, land subsidence and climate change gives new challenges for the present and the future. A new innovative approach of engineers is needed to reach socio-economic development with care for the environment. In the Netherlands, an EcoShape consortium is initiated where multiple experts came together from...

The beach adjacent to the Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Centre is one of the many beaches worldwide suffering from coastline recession. This loss of coast has a negative impact on the environment, local society and ecology. In general, shoreline retreat is caused by sea level rise (SLR) and erosion. The main objective of this research...

The aim of the Building with Nature (BwN) design philosophy is to improve on a traditional approach for infrastructural projects by utilising natural processes to create benefits for society and nature. In a fast-changing world where climate action is becoming increasingly important, there is need for an innovative approach in large...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, coastal zones can suffer from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions is the construction of permeable structures. This study aims to optimise the design of permeable (brushwood) structures in order to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment on tropical mud coasts....

Over the last decades, the People’s Republic of China experience large economic development, which have led to severe shortages of usable land. To counteract this, the Chinese central government promoted the development of coastal provinces by reclaiming large sections of coastal zones. One of these regions is Nantong Binhai Park or Tongzhou Bay...

Building with Nature (BwN) is a relatively novel way of thinking for flood protection. Unlike traditional flood protection solutions that are poised to bring forces of nature to a halt, the BwN’s philosophy is to use natural dynamic processes for engineering advantage as a protection against natural disasters and events. Yet, the BwN design...

Global flood exposure simulations show that about 600 million people, of which 320 million in urban areas, are at risk to the impacts of global sea-level rise and changing storm intensity and frequency. Increasing availability of data and computational efficiency enables to assess flood hazard on a global scale. Implementation of salt marshes...

Relative sea level rise and climate change represent long-term threats for the ecosystems and flood defence system in the Wadden Sea. Moreover, the flood-dominant tidal basins in the area lead to sedimentation in the navigational channels used by the ferry services that connect the mainland to the Dutch Wadden islands. This report provides flood...

The coastal waters of Nigeria are a difficult environment to build structures to control the local morphology and hydrodynamic conditions to ones desire. This difficulty is a consequence of the persistent high-energy swell wave climate and Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) in the order of one million cubic metres per<br/>year. Besides these...

Om aan de woningvraag te voldoen werd in 2000 de bouw van eilandengroep IJburg gestart in het IJmeer-Markermeer. IJburg bestaat uit twee fases die achtereenvolgend aan elkaar zouden worden aangelegd. In 2002 betrokken de eerste bewoners hun huizen op de eerste fase van IJburg. Momenteel is het laatste eiland van fase 1 nog onbebouwd en is...

A landscape architecture graduation work, dealing with drastic change in an urban area facing the risk of a major disruption, which calls for adaptive solutions for resilience. From adaptability theory two forces are derived that guide an analysis towards a solution for an urban environment challenged by sea level rise; the revolt, the force...

The Demak coastal area faces severe erosion problems. The main cause of the erosion of the coastline, which is at some places as high as 1.5 km of land, is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves for the purpose of building fishponds. This has disturbed the delicate sediment balance in the area drastically. The BioManCO project aims to...

The main objective and secondary objective, which corresponds to the in-depth research are as follows:<br/><br/>(1) To develop guidelines for engineers to include salt marshes in hydraulic infrastructure projects, subject to the Building with Nature philosophy.<br/>(2) To investigate the effect of grazing at salt marshes on the coastal...

Contemporary mono-functional flood defense solutions are no longer accepted, as they tend to not take their surrounding system into account. Today’s solutions require sustainability, multi-functionality and different stakeholders want to be heard. <br/><br/>One of the concepts that offers an alternative approach is the concept of Building with...

The climate goals for 2020, that multiple countries in the world signed, are coming closer. Like many other countries, the Netherlands has difficulties reaching their climate goal. A solution came from the Paris agreement in 2015, which sets new goals for 2030, and eventually for the long term in 2050. This time the Netherlands is eager to reach...

To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...
