In this paper, we introduce and test a framework to qualitatively assess the environmental impact of climate adaptation innovations with the ambition to facilitate the implementation of these adaptations. The framework was designed to enable continuous environmentally conscious benchmarking based on three environmental performance indicators:...

In this paper the safety of a double-dike system (or twin dikes) is assessed. Such a system consist of two parallel lines of flood defences. During storms the combined strength of the parallel flood defences must prevent flooding of the hinterland. A culvert can be implemented for the tidal exchange of sea water to enable new land-uses in the...

Effective adaptation to sea-level rise is critical for future flood protection. Nature-based solutions including salt marshes have been proposed to naturally enhance coastal infrastructure. A gently sloping grass-covered dike (i.e. Wide Green Dike) can be strengthened with clay accumulating locally in the salt marsh. This study explores the...

Integrating natural components in flood defence infrastructure can add resilience to sea-level rise. Natural foreshores can keep pace with sea-level rise by accumulating sediment and attenuate waves before reaching the adjacent flood defences. In this study we address how natural foreshores affect the future need for dike heightening. A...

This article describes and analyzes the reintroduction of the “wide green dike” in the Netherlands. It is a noteworthy example of implementation of an innovation in long-term strategic delta planning. The Dutch Delta Program was central herein. Pursuing its ambition to make the Netherlands climate-proof, the Delta Program invited a diverse set...

It is not uncommon for a flood defence to be combined with other societal uses as a multifunctional flood defence, from housing in urban areas to nature conservation in rural areas. The assessment of the safety of multifunctional flood defences is often done using conservative estimates. This study synthesizes new probabilistic approaches to...

This report focuses on the methodological development of the testing and implementation framework (TIF) for increasing the socio-technical readiness of climate adaptation innovations and assessing their impact on different socio-economic and environmental sectors. It is designed to be read by innovators and used as a supporting document for the...

Currently there is no internationally accepted framework for assessing the readiness of innovations that reduce disaster risk. To fill this gap, BRIGAID is developing a standard, comprehensive Testing and Implementation Framework (TIF). The TIF is designed to provide innovators with a framework for innovation and guidelines for assessing an...

In the Netherlands, the concept of a multifunctional dike has already often been implemented, and has been identified as a promising climate adaptation measure. In a multifunctional dike, functions like urban development, transport infrastructure, recreation, agriculture or nature are deliberately combined with its primary flood protection...

Bij Lauwersoog komen een aantal functies bij elkaar: haven, visserij, toerisme, natuur, maar ook waterveiligheid. De waterkering vormt een belangrijk element in het gebied. In dit rapport worden de ervaringen met het bepalen van de meerwaarde van innovatieve waterkeringen voor de pilotlocatie Lauwersoog beschreven. Het Deltaprogramma...

In dit rapport wordt een ‘Zoekkaart Kwelders en Waterveiligheid Waddengebied’ gepresenteerd. Deze zoekkaart geeft een beeld van locaties in het Waddengebied waar kwelders mogelijk kunnen bijdragen aan de waterveiligheid. Dit gaat zowel om bestaande kwelders als om het stimuleren van nieuwe kweldervorming. De zoekkaart is gebaseerd op de huidige...

Dit rapport geeft een samenvatting van relevant onderzoek naar de golfreducerende werking van kwelders en schetst de randvoorwaarden voor kweldervorming. Kwelders vormen een zone in het intergetijdengebied die de golven beïnvloeden door de weerstand van de bodem en de kweldervegetatie. De golfreducerende werking is afhankelijk van de hoogte en...

The Climate Dike is a logical addition to the current practice of raising and reinforcing dikes. A Climate Dike is defined here as „a collective term for design components that result in flood defences so robust that they are virtually impossible to breach, and thus offer lasting protection, even in the face of ongoing climate change.. The...
