Current policy in The Netherlands is guided by a ‘Water & Soil’ approach in relation to climate adaptation. But how effective is this and what challenges does this pose? That is the theme of our next Blue Transition knowledge exchange event in Drenthe on 19th – 21st March 2024.

‘Water & Soil’ as guiding principle for climate-change policy

The effects of climate change transcend all aspects of the spatial environment, impacting and influencing all sectors. It is clear that integrated solutions and clear strategies are needed. How effective is Water & Soil as a guiding principal in face of the challenges we are increasingly confronted with across the North Sea region? How do we implement potential solutions and what is the role of national and regional governments? What are the responsibilities for collectives, businesses, individuals and how are these supported?

Required steps towards future climate-resilient systems

Together with Blue Transition partners, climate experts, politicians and stakeholder representatives, we’re looking for answers and aim to gain more insight into the steps required to take the giant leap needed for future climate-resilient systems.

As part of the next  Blue Transition 3-day partner meeting, the Dutch partners  from the Province of Drenthe, Waterboard Hunze & Aa’s and Waterboard Noorderzijlvest have included a policy event on the 19th  March from 12.30 – 17.30 in the Provinciehuis in Assen. Besides the project partners, participants will include invited stakeholders, policy makers and experts in the field of climate change adaptation.
