Knowledge Marker Wadden

Knowledge and Innovation Programme Marker Wadden

Welcome to the webpage of Marker Wadden Knowledge and Innovation Programme (KIMA), that was initiated by Rijkswaterstaat, Deltares,  EcoShape and Natuurmonumenten (the Dutch Society for the Preservation of Nature).

The programme monitored the development of the Marker Wadden ecosystem between 2018-2022. It generated and presented knowledge about building with mud, sandy flood defences, ecology and governance.

Read the press release about the research results after five years (in 2022) with links to the research reports.
