This project approaches the development of water safety strategies as a spatial issue in which we investigate the connection of area assignments, application of dike concepts based on Building with Nature (BmN), and the development of public support for drastic landscape changes, based on four research questions that focus on: - Spatial quality of landscape and connection with support for spatial strategies; - Physical and ecological preconditions for BmN solutions and integration into spatial strategies; - Drivers and barriers for support through participatory design processes; - Guidelines for developing spatial strategies, both for the spatial design and the design process.
The underwater laboratory consists of 12 concrete basins in front of the NIOZ building in Yerseke. All of them are still in contact with the Easternscheldt during high tide. Within these basins research into how to enhance biodiversity on hard substrates like dykes and other man-made structures. Research type: field research, desk analysis, lab research
