The Dutch construction sector has the task in the coming years, to build around 1 million new houses in the Netherlands, most of which will have to be built in urban areas. Together with existing (inter)national crises such as the climate change crisis and biodiversity loss crisis, this means the sector will have to think differently to not...

The constant manipulation of the Dutch delta system and the resulting creation of hard borders between the natural river landscape, the harbor and the city has led to a destabilized delta system(Hein, 2021; Meyer et al., 2015). The spatial and ecological challenges resulting from population growth and the resulting urban growth, as well as...

While wild pollinators play a key role in global food production, their assessment is currently missing from the most commonly used environmental impact assessment method, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This is mainly due to constraints in data availability and compatibility with LCA inventories. To target this gap, relative pollinator abundance...

Hydrological ecosystem services (HESS) describe the benefits of water for multiple purposes with an emphasis on environmental values. The value of HESS is often not realized because primary benefits (e.g., food production, water withdrawals) get the most attention. Secondary benefits such as water storage, purification or midday temperature...

The principles of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), conservation of natural capital, and water accounting requires Hydrological Eco-System Services (HESS) to be determined. This paper presents a modeling approach for quantifying the HESS framework using the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). SWAT was used–after calibration against...

The rapid development of Dutch DC’s near airports pressures the environment. VGS are considered a promising measure toward a more nature-inclusive development of Dutch distribution centers. However, an integral quantitative impact assessment model is needed to retrieve funding and facilitate an evidence-based decision-making process for the...

Owing to the unique landscape characteristics of Dutch lowland, forests in Randstad region are found being the result of the interaction between historical development and natural conditions. As cultural influences are genetically embedded in forest formation, the landscape approach to urban forestry provides a novel and wholistic lens looking...

With the climate change and energy transition becoming evident and ever so relevant, industrialised regions focussed on fossil fuels need to rethink their socio-economic plan. Furthermore, urban designers are obliged to rethink the energy paradigm. This report combines energy landscape and resilient region theory and applies it on the peri-urban...

With the emerging climate change and nature degradation, solutions to the environmental challenges have to be implemented in various industries. The experiment method was undertaken to study symbiotic human and nature connection possibilities through the water and nutrient cycle. The purpose was to elevate the role of the building in enhancing...

As part of water resources management policy, water resources projects undertake environmental flow assessments (EFA) to determine how much water should be maintained or released to the downstream part of rivers to protect the health of aquatic and riparian ecosystems and societal wellbeing. In Ethiopia, EFA is being undertaken mostly in...

Study region: Upper Cauvery river basin, India Study focus: Reservoir construction is one of the major contributors to changes in natural river flow regime characteristics. This study aims to understand the hydrological alterations resulting from the construction of reservoirs and water abstraction in the upper regions of the basin. The...

Habitat alterations and fragmentation caused by anthropogenic modifications of the riverine landscape have affected fish biodiversity by reducing the number of fish species. Fish are a major element of the aquatic environment, and they play an important role in maintaining ecosystem resilience. However, an incomplete understanding of links...

Rio de Janeiro is an ever-changing and expanding city that is facing challenges interms of food security, urban sprawl, and the fragmentation of the green infrastructure. By mapping the surface area of the urban rooftop landscape and finding spatial synergies with the city’s socially and environmentally vulnerable areas, a case can be made in...

This thesis focuses on the challenges Istanbul faces due to extensive urbanisation and global warming. The metropole has become vulnerable to climate change, especially to the increasing threat of floods. As a result of urbanisation and poor city planning, the green spaces have decreased considerably in Istanbul, which reduced stormwater...

Food forests are gaining attention in the Netherlands as a concept that holds the promise of delivering a variety of ecosystem services our society depends upon. However, there are no insights available what a food forest could look like on peat soils nor what its environmental benefits could be. At the same time the Dutch peat area represents...

In this research light earth building is assessed on its possibilities to be applied in a more urban manner. Through literature studies and key performance indicators a view on which light earth building methods could be applied on larger scale development is established. Also, the possibilities of harvesting the resources in the region of...

Modern urban road systems often bring environmental problems and affect the quality of life of residents. The main roads in the south of Rotterdam face problems with lack of greenery, heat island effect and flash flooding. These problems have had a negative impact on the well-being of residents, and have also caused the road ecosystem to fail to...

The risk of flood risk is increasing with global trends such as rising sea levels, land subsidence, increasing populations in coastal areas and economic growth. Traditional solutions to reduce flood risk are a levee or a dam; however, the research on hydraulic engineering is increasingly promoting nature-based solutions for flood protection....

The Mara Wetland in Tanzania has an important role in regulating the quality, timing and magnitude of the flow of water into Lake Victoria. In addition, the wetland provides natural resources for local communities and habitat for variety of species. The planned dam construction upstream of the wetland and projected changes in the local climate...

By definition, Building with Nature solutions utilise services provided by the natural system and/or provide new opportunities to that system. As a consequence, such solutions are sensitive to the status of, and interact with the surrounding system. A thorough understanding of the ambient natural system is therefore necessary to meet the...
