Deze memo beschrijft recente inzichten op het terrein van ecologische kantelpunten die zijn opgedaan in onderzoek en bij Rijkswaterstaat. Gegeven de korte projectduur (twee maanden) is er niet gestreefd naar volledigheid, maar zijn er inzichten bijeengebracht die behulpzaam zijn om de discussie aan te zwengelen over wat de kantelpuntentheorie kan betekenen voor het beheer, evaluatie en monitoring van de grote wateren. In het sterk gemodificeerde Nederlandse watersysteem is het moeilijk om vast te stellen of alternatieve evenwichten onder gelijke condities mogelijk zijn en dat kantelpunten hiertussen plaatsvinden. Alternatieve evenwichten en terugkoppelingsmechanismen zijn het best onderbouwd en omschreven in de literatuur voor de Waddenzee en Veluwemeer. In de estuaria zijn er veel indicaties maar ook veel onzekerheden. In het rivierengebied is het de vraag of alternatieve evenwichten kunnen bestaan. Het beter begrijpen van terugkoppelingsmechanismen in de Nederlandse zoete en zoute wateren, en de interacties hiertussen, wordt echter breed onderschreven. Terugkoppelingsmechanismen
zijn met het kantelpuntenconcept goed te onderzoeken voor alle watersystemen en een beter begrip hierover is nuttig voor beleidsevaluaties, het inschatten van het effect van ecologische ingrepen en monitoringsplannen. Het is belangrijk om ook rekening te houden met ‘onbekende’ en niet kwantificeerbare factoren die de veerkracht van een ecosysteem kunnen beïnvloeden. Er is nog niet veel bekend over de invloed van microverontreinigingen, trofische cascades (vissen, vogels), microbiële bodemactiviteit en de rol van hydromorfologische dynamiek in rivieren en estuaria op de ecologische veerkracht van een watersysteem. Het is aan te bevelen om eerst met een aantal casestudies te
verkennen wat de mogelijkheden en datavereisten zijn om met langjarige tijdreeksen (ecologie, waterkwaliteit) indicatoren te bepalen die iets zeggen over verandering in ecologische veerkracht. Voorts doen wij de aanbeveling om het begrip ' Safe operating Space’ beter hanteerbaar te maken voor wateren natuurbeheerders.

All over Europe, wetlands have decreased in size, lost their original dynamics and became fragmented as the consequence of an ever increasing human land use. These processes have resulted in losses of nature values, among which declines in marshland bird populations. Ecological restoration of wetland systems follows from initiatives like EU Bird and Habitat Directives and Water Framework Directive, but may be, in itself, too costly to be widely applied. More promising perspectives to reinforce the wetland part of the ecological network Natura 2000 might come into focus when combined with spatial water management which is primarily aimed at more sustainable safety against flooding. In this way, the wetland network may acquire a wider public and political support. Knowledge on scale-related habitat use of wetland birds can play a role in the process of spatial planning. We illustrate this point by distinguishing four levels of spatial and temporal habitat use by wetland birds, and giving examples for each. The four levels are: (1) birds on stopover sites during migration, (2) territorial breeding birds, (3) colonial breeding birds, and (4) staging birds on wintering sites. This asks for ecological coherence on different scales, e.g. on the international level of migration flyways, on the regional level of landscapes and on the local level of individual wetlands. It is advocated that wetland ecologists dedicate themselves more specifically to quantifying the relevant data on habitat use of birds on each of these scale levels. Meanwhile, spatial planners should try to incorporate them into their efforts in realising combinations of ecological restoration or rehabilitation of wetlands and solutions for sustainable water management. These combinations might turn the tide for some seriously threatened species of marshland and wetland birds.

The Routeplanner project aims to provide a ‘systematic assessment’ of potential adaptation options to respond to climate change in the Netherlands in connection to spatial planning. The study is the result of a policy oriented project that took place between May and September 2006. The aim of the current study is to provide a ‘qualitative assessment’ of the direct and indirect effects of adaptation options and to provide an assessment of some of the costs and benefits of adaptation options. The present report presents and summarizes the results of all phases of the study: an inventory of adaptation options, a qualitative assessment of the effects of the adaptation options for the Netherlands in the long run, a database which allows to rank the various options according to a set of criteria and a relative ranking on the basis of these criteria. Finally the report also contains the best available information on costs and benefits of various adaptation options
Climate adaptation in the Netherlands

IPCC (2001) indicates that climate change will take place despite the mitigation strategies that are going to be implemented. This calls for adaptation strategies in order to reduce the vulnerability to climate change. The aim of this project was to make a policy assessment to contribute to a more thorough understanding of the adaptation options, their costs and benefits and the policy conclusions that could be attached to the results. The study is based on literature reviews, consultation of stakeholders and the design and implementation of a database with various options, and a first sketch of their incremental costs and benefits, either in quantitative of qualitative terms, and as far as current information allows. The study also pays attention to the institutional aspects by analyzing the role of the actors involved and the barriers and opportunities for implementing adaptation options.

The main objective of these guidelines is to promote the use of floodplains as natural flood defence measures, while at the same time optimising other compatible functions and values through conservation and restoration. It is intended that these guidelines will be used as a tool primarily by policy-makers and decision-makers who are aware of the potential advantages of floodplain restoration and management in the role of flood control, but may benefit from comprehensive guidance on assessing, initiating, funding and carrying-out such schemes as well as information on the other functions floodplains can perform. It is also intended that they will be an accessible source of information for a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in floodplain management. Case studies are provided to illustrate the wide range of schemes that can be carried out and the degrees of success that have been achieved. Case studies from the Netherlands are: 1. Meinerswijk, Rhine; 2. Zandmaas and Grensmaas, Meuse; 3. Gamerensche Waard, Lower Rhine; 4. Afferdensche en Deestsche Waarden, Lower Rhine
