Our comprehensive approach allows us to share, co-create and deploy the knowledge needed to ensure safe, sustainable and efficient infrastructure.
Our areas of expertise
Rijkswaterstaat is spearheading climate adaptation initiatives to ensure resilience against rising sea levels and extreme weather events.
Our expertise in sustainability revolves around 3 main pillars: energy and climate, the circular economy and sustainable land use.
We are creating, collecting and using more and more data. The responsibility to manage this data is immense.
In the coming years, (parts of) hundreds of bridges and locks, tunnels, storm surge barriers and line elements will need to be replaced and/or renovated.
Network governance emphasises international cooperation and coordination, for example in water protection, shipping, and roads.
Interrelated disciplines focused on improving transport systems through cooperation and technological advancement.
Rijkswaterstaat is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. We are responsible for the design, construction, management and maintenance of the Netherlands’ primary infrastructure facilities.
The increasing challenges - such as climate change, lack of space and scarcity of raw materials - are global. That’s why Rijkswaterstaat continuously invests in international partnerships, driving meaningful impact and sustainable progress based on shared knowledge and collaboration.
