The Promises of Roads for Polder Water Management and Flood Protection

Funded under the Blue Gold Innovation Fund and supported by Blue Gold, EKN, the Global Resilience Partnership/Z Zurich Foundation, this opportunity study explored the scope of and ways to integrate (embankment) road development and polder water management and flood protection. There are many connections between roads and water/flood management: i) roads change and disrupt natural drainage flows and khal connectivity, accentuating waterlogging in polders ii) many embankments double up
as roads and flood shelters and iii) road-water crossings, if provided with gates, being potential sites for water control and distribution. The report can be accessed here
