Knowledge key question:

What is Climate Smart Polder?

Brief on Polders of the Future

Water related infrastructure has a life span of 30 to 60 years or even more. Preparing for the future, therefore entails a careful consideration of the design of infrastructure in light of change in circumstances (climate change, salinity) and use of the infrastructure (agriculture, fish, boat).This sub project  process on innovation of planning and design of regulators for   better water management and farm practices for improved polder livelihood.

The aim of this project is to plan for and design an eco-friendly and innovative regulator, taking into account the optimal agricultural parameters for water management, in order to improve livelihood, restore eco system based services and improved operation and maintenance
