Due to climate change, we are all facing the same challenge to prevent or reduce future damage from flooding, heat, drought and flooding.
The Municipality of Middelburg is looking for practical solutions for this. The realization of sustainable water systems in built-up areas will play an increasingly important role in this. The Municipality of Middelburg wanted to gain experience with the construction of sustainable water systems and learn from countries around us. That is why the municipality of Middelburg participated in the Interreg 2 Seas project Water Resilient Cities, in short WRC.
Thanks to the project, the municipality of Middelburg was able to develop a joint work program and test solutions for sustainable drainage systems. The municipality was able to do this by carrying out two pilot projects: in the Molenwaterpark and De Overloper. In the run-up to the implementation of both pilot projects, the municipality paid a lot of attention to stakeholder participation and mapping out the additional benefits in the social, economic and ecological fields. In particular, it was investigated what the added value was for the target groups concerned, such as residents: what good is it? As far as possible, the results have been incorporated into the design of the plans and implemented in the pilot projects.
