Widening Solution Space in Riverine Climate Adaptation

Case Study IJssel by Cas Goselink

The current approach in riverine climate adaptation strategies aims to accommodate all functionalities of rivers into one singular riverbed but runs into the limitations of an integrated spatial system. The different functionalities of rivers, i.e. the riverine regimes of navigation, flood control, eco-hydrology, and drought management, in synchronization will lead to a decline in the performance of these separate regimes. This paper argues that spatial segregation in parallel systems throughout a larger territory offers a widening of solution space much needed within the integral approach.
