Billions for waterworks to make the Netherlands climate proof
The next years billions of euros will be spent on waterworks which will make the Netherlands climate proof.
Investments that are not confined to the increase of one dike, but also focus on a regional approach.
An approach that encourages cooperation, and shines the light on the specialized knowledge from the Dutch.
Martien Beek, staff member of the Dutch Delta Commission
This Delta Program is much more than keeping our feet dry. Gradually we develop on all fronts new knowledge. For example, you talk about innovations that sometimes arise from a local problem and a local solution. We are internationally respected for our solutions and inventiveness. The world knows this is one of the safest deltas.
The trick, however, is not only to market our knowledge internationally. We must also link to the implementation of a project. By seeking collaboration with specialists, the Dutch can be much more efficient. This requires focus, cooperation and coordination. The Delta Program is like a kitchen where new recipes are developed, which then could also be highlighted on the international market.
“In short”, mr. Beek says, “look at what can be more efficient, to answer the question of how issues. And the implementation can be better connected to each other in order to work more efficient and cheaper.”
