Rijkswaterstaat is always developing and innovating. An overview of some of the current water projects that are being carried out by or on behalf of Rijkswaterstaat is listed below.
The China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) is a network for water co-operation between European countries (including the EU) with the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources.
The aim of the partners in LIFE-IP PAF projects is to bring about a climate proof, safe, ecologically resilient, and economically vital delta.
Climate change increases the risk of flooding in the North Sea region due to rising sea levels, increased river discharge and heavier rainfall. This endangers the people and the economy of the North Sea region.
Climate change is increasing the risk of flooding in the North Sea region. This is endangering people and the economy.
The noise from shipping and construction can potentially have negative effects on vulnerable marine animals. The aim of Jomopans is to develop a programme for ambient sound in the North Sea.
The Cluster for Cloud-to-Coast Climate Change Adaptation project (C5a) aims to effect an adaptation to the physical, economic and social consequences of future flooding which also factors in climate change.
The aim of the ‘Joint Monitoring Programme of the Eutrophication of the North Sea with satellite data’ (JMP EUNOSAT) is to monitor and evaluate the presence of algae in the North Sea in a coherent manner by means of satellite observation.
The project Flood Resilient Areas by Multi Layer Safety (FRAMES) aims to minimise the impact of rising sea levels and extreme precipitation in areas of the North Sea Region.
The project Smartsediment aims to rebalance the biodiversity, waterbed and ecosystem services in the delta by cleverly handling the available sediment and the waterbed.
The Corridor Management Europe project works towards a higher predictability of inland navigation and the transport sector hence optimising waterway transport.
