Sustainable River Management

Key-note speaker Jeroen Rijke, Sustainable River Management
Applied research professor Sustainable River Management at HAN University of Applied Sciences. 

The Netherlands maintains the highest flood protection standards in the world. This is of vital importance, because 26% of the country lies beneath sea level and another 29% is prone to river floods. However, there are great challenges to keep the flood protection infrastructure up to standard, including sea level rise and climate change, aging infrastructure, increasingly diverse societal demands regarding functionality, scarcity of building materials, budget constraints, and an aging workforce. In his talk, Jeroen will discuss what is needed to face this grand challenge of keeping the Netherlands future proof.
