Pathfinder - Explores relevant climate arenas to identify and prioritise innovation opportunities
Land and water
The protection our delta and coastal areas is a constantly growing concern and innovations are crucial. The ‘Working with Nature’ approach is innovative, sustainable, and offers great business opportunities.
The world market for civil engineering in delta and coastal areas alone is €120 billion. Large sums of money are being spent on traditional civil engineering, such as the building of dams and dykes. But while the industry continues to focus on hard infrastructure, climate change is driving an urgent need for more resilient and adaptive alternatives.
