Coastal Resilience


Establishing NbS for coastal resilience

Discussion - Q&A, E.Cohen-Shacham, N.Nikolaidis, N.Kabisch, FORTH - ThinkNature Webinar 1

This recording concerns the discussion and Q&A section during the first ThinkNature webinar at 17/1/2019 about "NBS: Concept, Practices and Benefits". This webinar invited scientists, business/market actors, policy makers and authorities’/organizations’ representatives to discover the concept, practices and benefits of NBS. In the context of this webinar, the above-mentioned issues were presented by major NBS experts and the attendees had the opportunity to participate in short surveys and pose their own questions regarding the presented issues to the speakers.

Damming deltas: A practice of the past? Towards nature-based flood defense

There is extensive experience in adaptive management of exposed sandy coastlines through sand nourishment for coastal protection. However, in complex estuarine systems, coastlines are often shortened through damming estuaries to achieve desired safety levels. The Dutch Deltaworks illustrate that this approach disrupts natural sediment fluxes and harms ecosystem health, which negatively affects derived ecosystem services, such as freshwater availability and mussel and oyster farming. This heavily impacts local communities and thus requires additional maintenance and management efforts.
