9 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 9 the Sigmaplan What?  Sigmaplan 1976 ˗ Higher and stronger dikes: 512 km ˗ 13 Flood Control Areas ˗ Tidal Barrier

10 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 10 the Sigmaplan What?  Sigmaplan 1976 ˗ Higher and stronger dikes: 512 km ˗ 13 Flood Control Areas ˗ Tidal Barrier

11 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 11  Sigmaplan 1976 ˗ Higher and stronger dikes: 512 km ˗ 13 Flood Control Areas ˗ Tidal Barrier the Sigmaplan What?

12 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 12  Sigmaplan 1976 ˗ Higher and stronger dikes: 512 km ˗ 13 Flood Control Areas ˗ Tidal Barrier the Sigmaplan What?

14 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 14  Updated Sigmaplan dd. 2005, necessity: ˗ Endangered Aquatic and marine fauna and flora (natura 2000 – habitat directive) ˗ Reassessment of flood risk (climate change – spatial planning) ˗ Economic value of the river Scheldt Policy integration and preparation Safety, Nature and Economic growth for Flanders

15 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 15 Policy integration and preparation Safety, Nature and Economic growth for Flanders  1976 (start) – 2005 (actualisation) – 2030 (completion)  500+ kilometers river dykes  5,000 hectares flood control and nature areas project areas of the Sigma Plan

17 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 17  Multiple goals, several win-win’s, many stakeholders ˗ Optimizing Safety: waterway managers, local residents, … ˗ Developing natural quality: environmental organisations, … ˗ Economy: port companies, farmers, boatmen… ˗ Recreation : cyclists, hikers, canoeists, pleasure craft operators ˗ Overal: resident, local municipalities (politicians)  Difficult choices need to be made Room for the river = less space for humans need to expropriate or purchase soils and develop compensation measures Stakeholder management Stakeholders

18 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 18 Stakeholder management Different levels  Program level ˗ Planning Phase ˗ Implementation Phase  Project level ˗ Planning Phase ˗ Construction Phase

19 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 19 Stakeholder management Different levels  Program level ˗ Planning Phase ˗ Implementation Phase  Project level ˗ Planning Phase ˗ Construction Phase

20 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 20  comprehensive studies Stakeholder management planning phase DAMAGE AND VICTIME MODEL Damage (€) per return period for 2000 and 2100 for every municipality HYDROLOGICAL MODEL Flooding simulations per return period for 2000 and 2100 COSTS-BENEFITS MODEL Flooding risks, profitability, pay-back time ADDITIONAL EFFECTS Agriculture, View of neighbours, Nature CALCULATING COSTS MODEL Estimation investment costs and maintenance costs SELECTION OF MEASURES

21 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 21  Intensive consultation before en during decision making  government departments  civil society organisations  Agricultural  Nature  (recreation)  Politicians  …  Last phase: via environmental assessment report  Local municipalities, residents  Resulted in optimalisations of the plan + support on program level (= macro) Stakeholder management planning phase

27 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 27 Stakeholder management Project Level – Planning Phase FRAMEWORK ( SIGMA PLAN 2005 ) Project target: 850 ha wetlands search area : 1,300 ha timing : start construction by 2015 STAKEHOLDERS regional and local authorities sectoral interest groups 30,000 directly involved residents RESULT land use plan safety – ecology ecological management plan recreation and tourism plan PROCEDURES Environmental Impact Assesment Regional Spation Implementation Plan Applying for permits TECHNICAL STUDIES Agriculture Impact Assessement Surface and ground water model Ecological niche model CONSTRUCTION Starting 2015 and onwards Project development process

30 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 30 Stakeholder management Program Level - Implementaion Phase

31 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 31  Firm basis ◦ extensive multidisciplinary system studies ◦ legal policy decision  Uniform process lay-out ◦ preparation ◦ consultation ◦ formal procedures ◦ realisation  Main goal ◦ Safety & Nature in Scheldt estuary ◦ robust and self-sustaining ecosystem  With minimal social impact & maximal social support Conclusion key elements

32 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE ir. Maarten Jans commissioned by ir. Wim Dauwe Waterways and Sea Canal (W&Z) Sea Scheldt Department The Sigmaplan: policy-integration and stakeholder management 1/07/2014

33 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 33 Policy integration and preparation more sustainable approach  Deeper insight in the estuary’s many functions  Integral water management ˗ Respect the various functions of the water system; ˗ Avoid negative consequences for the environment; ˗ Seek added value and synergies ROOM FOR THE RIVER APPROACH ˗ Moving dykes landward (de-poldering) ˗ More complex ‘controlled reduces tides’ (GGG) ˗ New river areas (new alignment of the embankment)

34 ONTMOET DE SCHELDE 34  PAST ˗ Decisions based on high water levels; ˗ Basic rule: water can be suppressed; – taller, stronger dykes – flood control areas  2005 ˗ Decisions based on potential damage (costs –benefits); ˗ ‘Floods are also part of the Scheldt’; ˗ Safety vision: Better protection by giving the river more room to breathe Policy integration and preparation Safety, Nature and Economic growth for Flanders
