Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In consultation with partners from the HWBP project Grebbedijk, Rijkswaterstaat Oost-Nederland (RWS-ON) has commissioned Wageningen Environmental Research (WENR) for an exploratory studyto create an action perspective for the upcoming introduction of the Environmental Act and the introduction at RWS of the term “Sustainable Living Environment”. In 2018, in-depth interviews were held with project leaders of river widening and dyke improvement projects and with RWS advisers. The report includes a case study of the Grebbedijk, starting with a historical analysis. The integral approach and the participatory approach have been studied in more detail on the basis of the “Dijkversterking Grebbedijk” project of 2016-2018. The emphasis was on the participative, spatial design process that was used in this dyke improvement project. Conclusions include that structural reflection helps with complex processes and with the introduction of new methods such as the new Environment Act; and that trust and reliability are crucial in complex dyke improvement projects
