In line with the Adaptive Delta Management approach of the Dutch Delta Programme, Dordrecht has developed a multi-layer safety strategy to meet the future tasking for flood risk management. This strategy puts greater emphasis on limiting the consequences of floods through spatial planning (layer 2) and emergency management (layer 3), in addition...

Voor deze dijkring is het kostenefficienter om gericht maatwerk toe te passen op de dijkvakken met de grootste risicobijdrage dan om de dijkring in zijn geheel te versterken. Voor deze oplossing is echter een differentiatie naar dijktrajecten nodig, waarbij het mogelijk is om bepaalde dijktrajecten een veel hogere norm te geven (tot Deltadijk...

There is a growing international recognition that flood risk management in optima forma should be a programmed and flexible process of continuously improving management practices by active learning about the outcome of earlier and ongoing interventions and drivers of change. In the Netherlands, such a long-term, adaptive flood risk management...

Porto Alegre had a history of connections to the waterfront of the Guaíba Lake since it was been built on the banks of the lake. But following the flood that occurred in 1941, Porto Alegre created a series of waterfront protection measures that now are perceived as cutting the city from its lakefront location. Due to this separation and length...

Recent EU guidance on adaptation calls for the enhancement of socio-technical resilience to climate change. However, socio-technical resilience is relatively poorly defined and this makes it difficult to apply in practice. This paper uses the concept of identity as a vehicle to advance the definition and assessment of socio-technical resilience....

This dissertation presents a potential way forward for adaptation to climate change, termed the resilience approach. This approach takes a dynamic perspective on adaptive processes and the effects of these processes at/across different spatio-temporal scales. Experience is provided with four methods that can be used to apply the resilience...

Few, if any urban areas are nowadays built in isolation from existing developments. Therefore, urban expansion and making existing urban areas more sustainable is a contemporary goal. There are major opportunities to do this through the ‘normal’ renewal of urban infrastructure and building stocks both now and in the future. However, significant...

Brazil is currently facing widespread problems in the urban environment associated with inadequate systems for drainage of urban stormwater runoff. The PNSB study (2000) identified that out of a total of 5507 municipalities 22% suffered from flooding in the 1998- 1999 period. The majority of problems occurred in the southern states, which have...
