The inhabitants of the coastal belt have lived with water-related challenges since centuries. The introduction of polders secured harvests. Inside these polders conditions vary strongly and there is great scope to improve the water management. Pilots have shown that small canals, small gated culverts and interior dykes greatly enhance agricultural productivity and profitability. How to plan, design and implement these small scale infrastructure across the coastal belt? In this session you will learn about the boundaries, constraints and important aspects of upscaling.
