Polder management for sustainable livelihoods in Bangladesh
13 juni 2016 - 31 juli 2020
Sediments provide a high potential for a Building with Nature approach. This project builds on this notion and seeks to explore the potential of Living Polders in Bangladesh, that accrete along with rising water levels following sea level rise and subsidence. The project offers comprehension of integrated, coevolving physical and institutional processes across delta- and polder scales. Subsequently, it provides pathways to optimization through a Decision Support System for dynamic polder management and associated business cases. Project outcomes are evaluated for application elsewhere.
