Inhoud
The Delta Works was elected as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. This huge project started in response to the big flood of 1953 in the Southwest of the Netherlands. Hydraulic structures were built such as storm surges, dams closing off estuaries, and dikes were strengthened. But also, a legal framework with fixed and spatially differentiated flood protections levels was set up, and emergency management institutions organised to be prepared for evaluation. The project was declared finished some 50 years later. By then, new policies on flood safety where underway, trying to cope with societal and climate changes. This module examines technical, societal and scientific challenges that exist in flood security, and the diverging perspectives we can have on managing flood risk. The module addresses questions such as: How are risk perspectives framed in literature? Which perspectives can we recognise in Dutch flood risk management? Do different perspectives translate into differences in the assessment of flood risk? How different would the Netherlands look like, when designing a flood policy without compromising between perspectives?
