Abstract

Because of its low altitude above sealevel, it is a necessity for the Netherlands to be optimally prepared for the impacts of climate change. Taking measures to prevent damage by flooding and water shortage is becoming increasingly urgent. On a local scale, often the question arises: is it possible to temporarily store peak floods (water storage) and simultaneously conserve water (water retention) in the same area? And is it possible to improve the quality of retention water to guarantee a possible re-use of water, nutrients and production of biomass? The research project RichWaterWorld is one of the initiatives that is stimulated by the Delta Programme Commissioner to come up with innovative ideas to answer these questions. The RichWaterWorld consortium consists of public and private partners and knowledge institutes. The project is carried out in an area between Arnhem and Nijmegen, where a water storage basin has been built to prevent flooding in the neighbouring urban area and a greenhouse horticultural complex.
