Abstract

The concept of Building with Nature can be applied on a range of spatial and temporal scales: from improving the ecological value of a stretch of dyke to influencing an entire delta, and from anticipating to unwanted side effects of hard structures on the scale of years, to a multidecadal approach to dynamically reinforce the entire Dutch coast. The question therefore arose: would it be possible to design scenarios for the long-term future of the ZW Delta which make use of Building with Nature techniques on a large scale and what would this learn for possible pathways to a sustainable future?
