Demand driven approach

Polder2C’s offered a special approach in the development of flood resilience measures. The depoldering of Hedwige-Prosperpolder offered a 6 km2 Living Lab environment, where current and innovative techniques, processes, methods and products could be tested for practical validation. A new demand-driven approach was used where strategic, tactical and operational demands from stakeholders were the starting point.

What was special about the Living Lab is that not only failure tests were carried out, but that emergency response could also be practiced under controlled, but very realistic conditions. Market parties regularly come up with innovative or alternative methods and techniques to strengthen, or maintain the strength of levee facings. In the Living Lab these parties had the opportunity to test their products thoroughly.
