Chapter 27 (Page no: 181)

'Working with the sea': the 2008 Dutch national response to global warming and sea rise.

The Delta Commission presented its formal advice to the Cabinet of the Dutch National Government, on the consequences of global warming affecting the rise in sea levels, and the resultant risks for life in the Netherlands. Its summary advice is that water security remains a crucial role 'involving as it does both protection against flooding and the security of freshwater supplies'. The recommendations allow for phased, gradual flexible implementation, and the interventions proposed must be sustainable. The Delta Commission's conclusion is that a regional sea level rise of 0.65-1.3 m should be expected for the year 2100, and 2-4 m in 2200. This includes the effect of land subsidence. The Rivers Rhine and Meuse feeding into the Netherlands, from neighbouring lands, will be affected by temperature increase and changed patterns of precipitation - with decreased summer flows and increased winter flow. The 12 recommendations for the future which the Commission has developed extending to the year 2100 and beyond, are presented and discussed.
