Toelichting (Engels) The outline of the book is shaped as an hourglass – after this broad introduction, we zoom in on specific research findings, and zoom out again to integrate those findings and to reflect on broader applications. Chapters 2 to 5 highlight specific research findings of the NatureCoast PhD projects and, if applicable, of related projects. The chapters deal with the societal context in which the pilot Sand Motor came to be, the workings of the physical system of the Sand Motor, dune development at the Sand Motor, and the impact of the mega-nourishment on its animal life. After this, in Chapters 6 to 8, we relate the research findings to broader, overarching issues, such as multifunctional management of our coastlines and the worldwide application of sandy strategies. We summarize the main overall findings and put them in the context of the original aims of the Sand Motor, to assess how the characteristics of the Sand Motor have contributed to expected outcomes and also created more surprising ones, and to consider how this will continue in the future. With that knowledge, we reflect on the potential application of new sandy strategies, both in the Netherlands and abroad (based on experiences with four international case studies that we have been involved in). In the final chapter we reflect on the NatureCoast program, before leaving with reflections from key experts and end-users on the program and the usability of its findings.
