In dit onderzoek is onderzocht welke aanvullingen in het waterschaarstebeleid ervoor kunnen zorgen dat de beleidsontwikkelingen in Nederland aansluiten op de optredende verandering tot en met 2050. Hierbij is enerzijds in kaart gebracht hoe het beleid, met betrekking tot waterschaarste, zich heeft ontwikkeld van de Eerste Nota Waterhuishouding...

This research analyses and evaluates the performance of the drainage system in Beira, Mozambique. It considers its formation, maintenance, failure modes and connections, to recommend improvements on its performance. The research identifies six primary failure modes - vegetation overgrowth, human interference, waste accumulation, sedimentation,...

The political interest in fish habitat suitability and, consequently, of fish populations has increased. The fish habitat suitability is a key factor for successful ecological restoration, for example via dam removal and implementation of fish passage. Furthermore, the fish population composition determines the ecological quality of water bodies...

Changes in the climate have forced municipalities to rethink urban development and become more climate-resilient. One way they can achieve this is by implementing Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, or SUDS. Permeable pavements are a type of SUDS designed to let rainwater infiltrate, thereby reducing runoff and lowering peak flows. They can be...

The Province of South Holland is conducting a heritage project to explore the historical significance of barge canals and their future role in a changing climate. This thesis aims to address the water challenges posed by increased floods and droughts caused by climate change through the implementation of a water buffersystem. The buffer should...

On the 13th and 14th of July 2021 a cold pit caused extreme precipitation along with record discharges in tributaries of the Meuse. These discharges caused floods in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.<br/><br/>Extreme precipitation occurrence and its intensity are expected to increase in the area due to climate change, increasing flood risk....

In the summer of 2021 severe flooding occurred in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. High damages have been estimated in the Geul catchment, leading up to 250 million euro. Flood risk management in The Netherlands is mostly focussed on reducing the probability of flooding and in lesser extent on damage mitigation. Especially in areas such as...

To encourage climateadaptive building in the Netherlands the Covenant ClimateAdaptive Building (CKAB) was developed by a consortium of stakeholders (Convenant klimaatadaptief bouwen in ZuidHolland, 2018). This nonbinding agreement proposed standards for six (climate) aspects in order to adapt the Netherlands to a changing...

The research presented in this document presents a comparative analysis of the mainstreaming process of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) in mid-sized and large municipalities in the Netherlands. As a result of the extreme weather conditions presented by the STOWA, deteriorating sewers, and the increase of paved areas in urban...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate the evolution of Ilissos and Kifissos river basins in Athens, Greece and the ways this evolution was influenced by specific human factors. The dynamics of the human-water interactions have been studied in the frame of sociohydrology and the central key was to study the impact society had on the...

The Volkerak-Zoommeer is a former estuary located the Rhine Meuse Delta in the southwestern part of the Netherlands. After the completion of the Volkerakdam, Philipsdam and Oesterdam as part of the Delta Works, this estuary was cut of from the Oosterschelde and a fresh water lake was formed in a sea water environment. This new lake became the...

Andrikopoulou, T. (author)
Inland flooding along with its casualties is expected to increase. Climate change, urban expansion on floodplains, degraded ecosystems due to human interventions, lack of effective emergency flood risk management plans contribute to flood intensification and risk exposure. The heretofore flood mitigation practices seem to stop short of both...

Due to climate change a rise in sea level is expected, which is a threat to the coastline of the Netherlands. The area of the project focuses on the seaside resort of Scheveningen, and specifically on the area from the Morales boulevard to the start of the natural dunes. The reason for this specific area is because the municipality of The Hague...

It is no secret that the climate is changing, however, the severity and speed of this process is under debate. This leads to the question if and when we need to take action to protect the Netherlands against the effects of climate change. In order to deal with the uncertainties in policy- and decision-making, an adaptive approach is desirable....

In 2018 The Netherlands experienced the most severe drought since 1976. In response to this, the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management established the 'Beleidstafel Droogte'. An external scientific committee took part in the Beleidstafel Droogte. One of their key recommendations was to introduce other drought indicators since the...

Scarcity of water resources in Central Asia’s Amu Darya and Syr Darya river basins lies at the root of long-running tensions between Central Asian countries over the division of these resources. Water diplomacy by outside actors aimed at mediating this dispute has so far shown limited results. This thesis investigates what lessons for third...

Since coined in 2011, socio-hydrology studies have been dominated with mathematical models developed by mostly hydrologists, which often did not take social aspects into account so seriously. Some people argued that more attention into the social part of socio-hydrology should be given, because often the social aspects were too oversimplified....

The social dimension in water management and the interaction of stakeholders is a challenge when modeling hydrological systems. Case studies are essential to uncovering relations and unexpected results. In this research, a case study of the Guayllabamba basin in Ecuador is proposed. Mainly, the interactions, perspectives, and relations between...

Water scarcity is a growing issue across the globe (Rijsberman, 2006) and because agriculture is the main consumer of water, investing in irrigation efficiency seems like a good solution to this problem. However, local gains in efficiency can reduce runoff and hence, have an adverse effect on downstream water availability (o.a. Perry (2018, 1999...
