Deltaprogramme Wadden area for the MIRT-researches 2011-2014

This project will give insight into what security challenges occur when the sea level rises because of a climate change and what solutions could be promising, taking the preservation of the unique ecological and economic qualities into account.


The goal of this project is a concrete as possible description of the security challenges and the combinability of security regulations with ecological and economical values and goals in the region, based on existing knowledge and data. Also, it is necessary to describe the knowledge gaps that need to be fulfilled in order to achieve informed policy choices concerning the Delta program in the Wadden area. Because of changing sea levels it is important to create new strategies to maintain a secure Wadden area where the existence of a strong resilient nature is possible and where sustainable use by human is no problem.
