Kenya | Infram
Lake Victoria is a very important resource for the three riparian countries: Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. Nile Perch exports alone are valued at over US$300 –450 million per annum. The lake covers a vast area and the collection of data on the lake is therefore a time consuming exercise. The environmental challenges are very big: invasive species (water hyacinth), algae blooms and urbanisation al...

The project area is characterized by a beach consisting of medium sand and pebbles enclosed by headlands. The headlands are steep cliffs rising up to 30 m. A river mouth is debouching at the project site. The river has distinct wadi characteristics. During most of the year it is dry. However, heavy rainfall can lead to high discharges carrying large amounts of sediment. In addition, two more wa...

Senegal | Royal HaskoningDHV
The livelihood of about 400,000 people living in the Senegal River Delta is severely affected by aquatic weed pests covering the flood plains. Two dams built in the second half of the 1980’s determine the river conditions in the Senegal Delta. Stagnant fresh water in the flood plains have caused infestation of aquatic weed pasts (particularly typha australis). This situation causes water rel...

Ghana has seen remarkable economic development over the past two decades. However, the economic progress has not brought about a reduction of disaster risks. To the contrary, the economic development has increased the exposure of economic assets to hazards. In an effort to remediate this issue, the Government of Ghana is working together with UNDP to set up and actualize a Plan of Action for Di...

In 2001 Witteveen+Bos organised a seminar that proposed polder systems as a possible solution for flood problems in waterfront cities in Indonesia. To prove that the polder concept can contribute to lower flood risks, it has been decided to develop a pilot polder in the city of Semarang. As time progresses the waterfront city of Semarang is flooded more often due to large land subsidence and ri...

In areas with seasonal fluctuations in water availability due to a rainy season or fluctuations in demand, storage could be used to bridge periods of freshwater shortage. There may be sufficient overall amounts of freshwater available in many cases; however, storage is necessary to be able to use it when needed. Agriculture would benefit from sufficient freshwater during periods of drought....

Over the last years Royal HaskoningDHV has developed the Polder Terminal concept. This concept comprises a terminal in a polder instead of on top of a land fill as is the usual practice in the world. A polder is low-lying land surrounded by barriers, which are called dikes. These dikes ensure that no water from outside can get inside the polder, which is located lower than the water level outsi...
