Towards inclusive and sustainable urbanizing deltas by design
Unsustainable growth (urbanization) and climate change increase the urgency to radically change our current practice of delta management. There is still too much emphasis on short term solutions which constrains options to consider sustainable solutions on the long term. Moreover, in the coming decades, an opportunity for a ‘reset’ of the existing infrastructure is near as huge investments in this sector are foreseen in many deltas. However, an integrated strategy, an appealing perspective on the ‘delta future’ and the knowledge to develop the pathways to a sustainable and inclusive delta, are lacking.
It is more important than ever to collectively build the knowledge needed to develop these pathways in which transformations will likely be necessary. Both require a design-based approach in which these different perspectives are recognised and joint new perspectives are explored, identified and visualised.
In this presentation the methodological underpinning of an ambitious, inter-disciplinary and multi-annual project, which puts design and design-based research at the heart to deliver these outcomes, will be shared. It will briefly touch upon (i) tipping points and (ii) the multi-level safety approach as anchor points to develop these pathways.
