Steps…Charrette / interactive design session:Day 1• Site visit• Inspiration: – Climate dike presentations NL – Presentations Manhattan• Analyzing Manhattan: multi layer approach• First sketches/impressions future situationDay 2• Group design: options for the Manhattan-situation• Final presentations• Informal closingCouple of weeks later… an inspiration map
Charrette• Interactive design• Learning from each other• Sharing knowledge and experiences• With local stakeholders and experts• And NL-team platform Climate Delta Dike• Combining technical solutions and design options• Result: various alternatives and overall view
Multi layer approachCurrent Ducth multi layer policy:1. Prevention (technical safety measures);2. Damage prevention through sustainable spatial planning (zoning);3. Damage response through adequate emergency management.
