The Balance Sheet of Nature Under Water

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientific

Abstract

The Sand Motor is a miracle of governance flexibility. Despite the strict, legal constraints for coastal defence in the Netherlands, a group of visionary people succeeded in convincing all stakeholders that this pilot was worth pursuing (Chapter 2). Value for nature was a prominent argument. It was even stated that the Sand Motor would “create nature” over vast areas, which makes one wonder what was there before.
