How The Dutch Dug Up Their Country From The Sea
The Dutch have a saying: “God created the world, but the Dutch created the Netherlands”. Today we will see why. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Like & Share! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/averythingchannel/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/AveryThing ----------------------------------------------------------------------- The Dutch polders are the largest land reclamation projects in the world, a true marvel of engineering which added nearly 20% of land to the country, and its fertile land makes the Netherlands the second largest exporter of food in the world. In the last episode we looked at how a large dike was constructed to block seawater from flooding the inner regions of the netherlands. In this episode we’re going to look at how parts of this inland water area was drained and turned into fertile land. While this is part of a series, you don’t need to have watched the first episode to understand this one. I try to make my videos as stand-alone as I can. Ever since the 16th century, large areas of land have been reclaimed from the sea and lakes, amounting to over 50% of the country’s current land area if you include every lake ever laid dry. The process of land reclamation in the Netherlands is mainly done through Poldering. It is the process of draining water from a lake or by placing dikes around an area of water and THEN draining it until you are left with very fertile land. And this is what Lely proposed: build a dike to stop the sea water, then build smaller dikes inside this newly formed lake, and one-by-one drain the water. This land was rich in clay, could be settled, and could be farmed, which in turn meant that the Dutch government could tax them, and make A LOT of money.

Holland's Barriers to The Sea
The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely automated process done without human intervention.

HOLLAND: Kinderdijk -19 Dutch windmills [HD]
A network of 19 windmills was built around 1740 to drain the polder of Kinderdijk and surrounding polders. (Polders are areas of land below sea level that are protected by dikes.) The windmilles stand in neat rows along an L-shaped drainage canal, where they pumped water from the surrounding polders, until steam and electric pumps offered more reliable protection against flooding. This group of mills is the largest concentration of windmills in the Netherlands. And nowhere in the world you will find as many windmills as near the village of Kinderdijk. The foundation "Wereld Erfgoed Kinderdijk" maintains and preserves the windmills in Kinderdijk. The preservation is not limited to the windmills themselves, but also covers the area in which the windmills are situated. The windmilles were placed on the list of UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997. The Kinderdijk windmill area is situated in the Alblasserwaard between the rivers Lek and Merwede, about 25 kilometres from Rotterdam. The 19 windmills at Kinderdijk symbolise the way in which the Dutch have managed the water. For centuries, they have kept the land dry, which had been ravaged by subsidence and floods. July 7, 2010

HOLLAND: Afsluitdijk / Enclosure Dam [HD]
The Afsluitdijk (English: Enclosure Dam) is a major causeway in the Netherlands. It is damming off the Waddenzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea, from the fresh water lake of the IJsselmeer. It was constructed between 1927 and 1933 and runs over a length of 32 kilometres (20 miles) and a width of 90 m, at an initial height of 7.25 m above sea-level. The Afsluitdijk is a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works, a manmade system of dams, land reclamation and water drainage works, the largest hydraulic engineering project undertaken by the Netherlands during the twentieth century. Its main purposes are to improve flood protection and create additional land for agriculture. Beside the dam itself is also the necessary construction of two complexes of shipping locks and discharge sluices at both ends of the dike. The complex at Den Oever includes the Stevin lock and 3 series of 5 sluices for discharging the IJsselmeer into the Wadden Sea. The other complex at Kornwerderzand is composed of the Lorentz locks and 2 series of 5 sluices. In total there are 25 discharge sluices. It is necessary to routinely discharge water from the lake since it is continually fed by rivers and stream and polders draining their water into the IJsselmeer. The Afsluitdijk was Holland's first 130 kph road (1st of March 2011). March 9, 2014

Lessons from Holland on fighting rising sea levels
Windmills are more than just a traditional part of the Dutch landscape; they have played a key role in the war Holland has waged against the sea for centuries. Today the Dutch are using ever-more innovative methods to combat rising sea levels, strategies that may also benefit other nations confronting the effects of climate change. Martha Teichner reports.

Dutch War Against The Sea: The Afsluitdijk -  Longest Dam In Europe
Subscribe! The Netherlands is extremely vulnerable to flooding. So the Dutch constructed the longest dam in Europe. And it has never broken in the last 85 years. This is the story of its construction. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Like & Share! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/averythingch... Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/AveryThing ----------------------------------------------------------------------- In the past The Netherlands would flood regularly, with many early settlements built on higher ground. Between 800 and 1300 these floods were especially bad, caused by rising sea level due to a warmer climate. These floods slowly connected these lakes with the North Sea This new body of water was called the Zuiderzee, or Southern Sea. Ships could now travel freely between the North Sea and the most inner parts of what today we call the netherlands. Including this little town called Amsterdam, Becoming a major trading city, create the first stock exchange, and develop the early forms of modern capitalism. All because of these floods. The Southern Sea made the Netherlands more vulnerable to flooding. Over the centuries, the sea water would periodically sweep in and flood the surrounding areas, destroying crops, homes, and families. Something had to be done. The netherlands. Must. Be. Protected. It is at this point that we have to look at man named Cornelis Lely. Lely was born in 1854 and received an education in civil engineering at the Delft University of Technology. He began working as an engineer for the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management in The Netherlands. First helping the ministry to implement some canal-laws. Then he joined the Southern Sea Association whose goal was to close off the Southern Sea using dikes. Over the course of 5 years, he proceeded to lay out a brilliant plan that would revolutionize dike-building, permanently close off the Southern Sea against any flood, and pump dry large swaths of land to be used for agriculture. What was revolutionary was not what he wanted to build, but HOW he planned to build such a large dike; many before had tried but they never figured out HOW to do. But this idea wasn’t cheap. In fact, his plan would cost as much as the entire Dutch government budget for a whole year. To put that into perspective, The Netherlands’ government budget for 2018 is 285 billion Euro. Lely’s plan therefore also had to include a way to make A LOT of money. He wanted to pump large areas of land dry to mine clay and use the new fertile land for agriculture. We will talk more about how this part of his plan was executed in the next episode of this series, but spoiler alert: This made the Netherlands the second largest exporter of food in the world. And then two events happened that made parliament realize that they NEEDED to have this dam and these polders. The first, is world war one. While most of Europe at the time was embroiled in one of the bloodiest wars in history, the netherlands remained neutral. Furthermore, all of its neighbours were at war. This meant that food was scarce as millions now had to be fed without producing food or other products themselves. This increased the demand for food and, in a world without artificial fertilizer, lots of farmland was NECESSARY to keep one’s own population well fed… and the netherlands is a small country with a lot of people, so it DESPERATELY needed fertile land to keep its growing population fed. But the most compelling reason came in 1916. In the middle of the night, a large flood came crashing into the netherlands. The dikes… broke. Thousands of homes were damaged and destroyed. Holes of over 100 meters wide were clawed out of the dikes by the rushing water. And several counties went bankrupt trying to repair this damage. First the Dutch had to build a sturdy foundation. Ships came, day in day out, dropping millions of cubic meters of material into the sea. On the inland side, heavy stones were deposited, on the seaside, boulder clay was dropped into the sea. They were kept in place with brushwood mattresses, which in turn were held down by boulders and old concrete. Then till was collected from the sea bottom and deposited upon this foundation. Finally, the dike was finished by raising it above sea level with sand and clay. To make sure the dike was sturdy, grass was planted on top. The dikes was closed on May 28th 1932, two year earlier than expected. the Southern Sea was turned into a lake: the IJsselmeer, or IJssel Lake, named after the river IJssel which deposited its water into this new lake. And this water needed to be deposited from this newly formed lake into the sea. So at both ends of the dikes sluices were constructed to let the water flow into the sea. And as salt water was deposited into the sea, the Ijsellake slowly converted from a salt water lake into a fresh water lake.

Why is the Netherlands flat?
The Dutch Grebbe mountain, the Sint-Pieters mountain and the Vaalser mountain all have one thing in common: they're not mountains. Because geographers think a hump is only a hill until it's at least 500 metres high. The find the reason for Holland's lack of mountains, you need only look beneath your feet, to the earth's crust. It may seem steady, but actually it's always on the move. That's why there are Earthquakes and vulcanic eruptions. All this movement has torn up the earth's surface, and divided it into tectonic plates. When these plates collide, you get mountain ranges. That takes millions of years, so we don't celebrate mountain birthdays. You couldn't afford the candles, mate. These plate tectonics have given us wonderful things as The Alps, but they are also the reason Holland is flat as a pancake. Because where there are ridges, there are also flats. Our low land even used to be under water, but because the ocean was kind enough to leave us some sand and clay, we were able to build dikes. God created the Earth, but the Dutch created Holland. So, no mountains... at all... STOP THE PRESSES! As of 2010 the Caribbean island of Saba is a special municipality of the Netherlands! And that means the Kingdom finally has a proper mountain! Mount Scenery is a dormant volcano of 877 metres. Hip Hip? Saba!

Wondrous Veluwemeer Aqueduct Water Bridge, Holland.
"Architectural engineers have created some amazing structures in this world but the Veluwemeer Aqueduct in the Netherlands is truly the best. Most aqueducts are basically bridges that are built above water. But the Veluwemeer Aqueduct is a bridge for the passing ships while those driving in cars go through a tunnel underneath the bridge. In other words, it is an underwater tunnel where the ships sail on the top and the cars travel underneath it. That way traffic jams can be avoided because cars no longer have to wait for boats to pass by anymore." - The Mind Circle

Dutch Urbanism And The Resilient Cityscape
The Dutch landscape is mostly water and sand, and most of that exists below sea level. It is not a country rich in natural resources, yet despite these limitations, the Dutch have managed to create a vibrant culture, and economy. Dutch architecture and a value for urbanism contributed to creating place, and that helped balance the needs of the fragile ecology, while building urban landscapes that not only met the needs of a dense and growing populace, but created some extraordinary urban constructs (think Amsterdam, Delft and other canal cities). Even today, this tradition of integrating architecture, urbanism, engineering and landscape design helps shape the continued transformation of contemporary Dutch cities, like Rotterdam and its expansive harbor. In this discussion, a panel of experts lead us through the Dutch experience with an eye to how Boston is now facing the prospect of rising sea levels. They show some new trends and strategies that contemporary Dutch designers, urbanists, planners and engineers are engaging in as they again face rising sea levels. In particular, they focus on how new forms of public space, landscape and infrastructure can be integrated into a more resilient urban landscapes.

The polder - unique landscape under sea level
The Netherlands is known for its polders. Approximately one third of the Netherlands lies under sea level. Dams, dikes and sluices keep the water out, and pumping stations ensure that the groundwater remains at safe levels. This water level is expressed NAP (Normaal Amsterdams Peil -- Normal Amsterdam Water Level).
AMAZING Places BELOW Sea Level
From an airport that operates thousands of feet below sea level, too one of the saltiest places on earth here’s some amazing sights that the ocean could look down on. Taieri Plain Lying just north of the Dunedin International Airport, is New Zealand’s lowest point, two meters below sea level. It’s all a part of the Taieri Plain, a three hundred square kilometer patch of farmland. The land is dominated by farm animals and lovely towns like Mosgiel and Maungatua. Floods in the region happen regularly and can be severe. Lammefjord This agricultural land in Denmark used to be a body of water. But a draining project started in 1873 and it took a really long time to complete. It wasn’t until 1943 that the lowest lying elevations were pumped dry. Now the land is ideal for growing things like carrots and potatoes. At seven meters below sea level it's, along with a polder in the western Netherlands, one of the lowest lying points in all of western Europe. Georgetown The busiest place in Guyana (guy-anna), Georgetown is also the country's capital and is where some 120 thousand people call home. Normally it lies right at sea level, 0, but at high tide it's actually one meter below sea level. It's for this reason that the land is protected by a seawall and authorities decided to install an intricate network of canals to drain the city. Georgetown is hot and humid. There’s no dry season however, with all 12 months experiencing at least 2 average inches of precipitation. New Orleans Until the Louisiana purchase in 1803 Napoleon and the French owned New Orleans. The city was named after a French Regent in 1718. After the U.S. purchased the land New Orleans would become a melting pot of cultures, with American, French, Creole and African people creating a diverse mix of lifestyles. It’s why the city is such a unique, fun place to experience. Parts of the city lie a few meters below sea level. By the late 20th century city officials began to realize that New Orleans could be vulnerable to flooding. Events like Hurricane Betsy in 1965 and a flood in May of 1995 demonstrated as much. The first mandatory evacuation in the city's history occurred in the same year, and was in lieu of Hurricane Katrina. While most residents had left by the time Katrina hit land, more than 1,500 people were lost during the disaster. During the hurricane the cities federal flood protection system failed. 80% of the city would flood as a result. The event is one of the worst civil engineering disasters of all time, and many say the worst since Chernobyl in 1986. Lake Eyre It doesn’t often fill, but when it does, Lake Eyre in central Australia become the largest lake in the country. Even when it's not full, it's home to the country’s lowest point at 49 feet below sea level. The salinity of the lake, which is at ocean levels when full, increases as water evaporates. Saturation occurs and at this poi9nt the lake turn pink. There’s just one more place left to learn about, but first we’d like to thank everyone for watching. We hope you learned something interesting in the last nine minutes and we invite you to subscribe and tune into our next video. Now for one more place, and it’s a city that’s constantly having to hold water at bay, Kristianstad Sweden's lowest point, nearly two and a half meters below sea level can be found in this city. It’s why parts have systems of levees and pumps in place for flood protection. In the recent past they’ve gone to great lengths to protect the environment. They use no oil, coal or natural gas to warm buildings, a remarkable turnaround considering that just two decades ago all of their heating came from fossil fuels.

earth report | go with the flow: living with floods, Netherlands
In the Netherlands two out of three people already live below sea level. Faced with a further rise in sea level of up to 0.8 metres, the country is developing a radical national action plan that turns three centuries of flood engineering on its head. Soft engineering allows land to be sacrificed to rivers and the sea and learning to live with flood waters rather trying to hold them back. With thanks to UNEP and the EU.

Dutch/Nat With much of its territory below sea level, the Netherlands takes dikes very seriously. Surprisingly, the greatest threat to these crucial levees is muskrats. To combat the problem, professional rat trappers go out every day across Holland to hunt and kill these tunnelling animals. The latest threat to the Netherlands' vast system of medieval levees - which protect two- thirds of the country from submersion - isn't erosion or even old age: it's the incessant tunnelling of muskrats. For centuries, the Dutch have paid careful attention to their earthen dikes, some of which date to the Middle Ages. The situation has taken on new urgency since 1995, when widespread flooding of the Maas, Waal and Rhine Rivers forced the evacuation of 250,000 people. Every day 500 government-hired muskrat trappers go out to hunt these furry animals. Muskrats are tunnelling beneath the dikes. There is the continuous threat of a dike breaking any minute and unleashing flows of water with devastating effects. But it's a war the trappers cannot win, because they are up against millions of fast- breeding muskrats. One couple can produce up to 50 babies a year, and by midsummer those born in spring are already bearing their own young. These trappers walk 300 miles a year, carrying 45-pound bags stuffed with traps. They slog through bone-chilling water, stinging-nettles and quicksand-like mud. SOUNDBITE: (Dutch) "We are the muskrat trappers from the province of Utrecht. We try to limit the amount of muskrats. So we catch as many rats as possible close to the dikes and dams, and also on the farmland." SUPER CAPTION: Roelof Abbenbrowk, muskrat trapper So, it is "zero tolerance" for the insidious and prolific muskrats thriving in the Netherlands' hundreds of thousands of miles of waterways. There are even muskrat hotlines, part of a 15 million (m) dollars a year effort to thin them out. SOUNDBITE: (Dutch) " A rat can remove a cubic metre of sand every year. So if you would have rats over here, then the dike would be undermined inside a couple of years. The dike would be like a Swiss cheese and would collapse if people or cattle would walk on it. At that moment the water would be transferred from one level to another. The longer the water is flowing means the dike will collapse completely and the polder-land would be flooded." SUPER CAPTION: Roelof Abbenbroek, Muskrat trapper Last year a Rotterdam farmer drowned in a silted canal when his combine hit a muskrat hole and crashed. Flooding remains the biggest worry. When muskrats tunnelled completely through a dike in South Holland recently, water spurted out and emergency personnel frantically patched it before it could give way completely. The muskrat-infested dikes have even convinced most animal rights activists of the need for the annual kill-off. Last year alone, trappers using neck-breaking steel traps killed 326,893 muskrats.

The Netherlands in HD
Beelden uit de televisieserie Nederland van Boven, VPRO The Netherlands (i/ˈnɛðərləndz/; Dutch: Nederland [ˈneːdərˌlɑnt] ( listen)) is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. The European part of the Netherlands borders the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east, and shares maritime borders with Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. It is a parliamentary democracy organised as a unitary state. The country capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague. The Netherlands in its entirety is often referred to as "Holland", although North and South Holland are actually only two of its provinces. The Netherlands is a geographically low-lying country, with about 20% of its area and 21% of its population located below sea level, and 50% of its land lying less than one metre above sea level. This distinct feature contributes to the country's name: in Dutch (Nederland), English, and in many other European languages, its name literally means "(The) Low Countries" or "Low Country". Most of the areas below sea level are man-made, caused by centuries of extensive and poorly controlled peat extraction, lowering the surface by several meters. Even in flooded areas peat extraction continued through turf dredging. From the late 16th century land reclamation started and large polder areas are now preserved through elaborate drainage systems with dikes, canals and pumping stations. Much of the Netherlands is formed by the estuary of three important European rivers, which together with their distributaries form the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. Most of the country is very flat, with the exception of foothills in the far southeast and several low hill ranges in the central parts. The Netherlands was one of the first countries to have an elected parliament, and the country is a founding member of the EU, NATO, OECD and WTO. Together with Belgium and Luxembourg it forms the Benelux economic union. The Netherlands had the tenth-highest per capita income in the world in 2011. The country is host to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and five international courts: the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The first four are situated in The Hague, as is the EU's criminal intelligence agency Europol and judicial co-operation agency Eurojust. This has led to the city being dubbed "the world's legal capital". The Netherlands has a market-based mixed economy, ranking 13th of 157 countries according to the Index of Economic Freedom. In May 2011, the Netherlands was ranked as the "happiest" country according to results published by the OECD

View on the Delta Works in The Netherlands.flv
The Dutch have an eternal war with water. They have conquered the sea and floods, but it was a hard fight. The Dutch built dikes to protect the country against floods. Windmills were used to pump the water out of the areas below sea level and later to drain lakes into polders, because of the need for more land. The Dutch polders are now famous scenery in Holland. The Dutch also made a large dam (Afsluitdijk) to separate the Southern Sea (Zuiderzee) from the North Sea and turned it into a giant lake, the IJsselmeer. Later on, the province of Flevoland was created as a large polder island in the IJsselmeer. Delta Works The most recent big flood was in 1953 during a giant storm. The province of Sealand (Zeeland) was flooded after the collapse of several dikes and more than 1,800 people drowned. The Dutch government decided that this must never happen again and they initiated the Delta Works, a project that lasted almost 50 years with big dikes, dams and storm surge barriers, which was completed in 1997. Before that time it was already famous worldwide. Now, the American Society of Civil Engineers recognizes it as one of the seven wonders of modern world. Since the Dutch are famous for water management, they are hired for projects all over the world. For more information, please visit www.iStip.com

How to keep your feet dry at 3,5m below sea level
At the start of the Dutch Golden Age, the 17th century, the northern part of Holland had enough capital and technology to deal with its water problems. Under supervision of Jan Adriaanszoon Leeghwater (architect, mill builder and hydraulic engineer) the Dutch started pumping the water out of the large lakes around Schermer Island. In 1612 the Beemster was one of the first lakes to be turned into dry land. Today the reclaimed land lies approximately 3.5 metres below sea level. The Beemster Polder is an exceptional example of reclaimed land in the Netherlands. It has preserved intact its well-ordered landscape of fields, roads, canals, dykes and settlements, laid out in accordance with classical and Renaissance planning principles. The Beemster was placed on UNESCO's world heritage list as a unique example of seventeenth century landscape architecture. © Broadcast format available at: http://www.stockshot.nl/ - Music title Lamentation by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) licensed under Creative Commons "Attribution 3.0"

For purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. Holland is a name in common usage given to a region in the western part of the Netherlands. The term Holland is also frequently used to refer to the whole of the Netherlands. This usage is generally accepted but disliked by many Dutch people in the other parts of the Netherlands.[1] From the 10th century to the 16th century, Holland proper was a unified political region, a county ruled by the Count of Holland. By the 17th century, Holland had risen to become a maritime and economic power, dominating the other provinces of the Dutch Republic. Today, the former County of Holland consists of the two Dutch provinces of North Holland and South Holland, which together include the Netherlands' three largest cities: country capital Amsterdam; seat of government The Hague; and Rotterdam, home of Europe's largest port. Holland is situated in the west of the Netherlands. A maritime region, Holland lies on the North Sea at the mouths of the Rhine and the Meuse (Maas). It has numerous rivers and lakes and an extensive inland canal and waterway system. To the south is Zealand. The region is bordered on the east by the IJsselmeer and four different provinces of the Netherlands. Holland is protected from the sea by a long line of coastal dunes. Most of the land area behind the dunes consists of polder landscape lying well below sea level. At present the lowest point in Holland is a polder near Rotterdam, which is about seven meters below sea level. Continuous drainage is necessary to keep Holland from flooding. In earlier centuries windmills were used for this task. The landscape was (and in places still is) dotted with windmills, which have become a symbol of Holland. Holland is 7,494 square kilometres (land and water included), making it roughly 13% of the area of the Netherlands. Looking at land alone, it is 5,488 square kilometres in size. The combined population is 6.1 million. The main cities in Holland are Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Amsterdam is formally the capital of the Netherlands and its largest city. The Port of Rotterdam is Europe's largest and most important harbour and port. The Hague is the seat of government of the Netherlands. These cities, combined with Utrecht and other smaller municipalities, effectively form a single city—a conurbation called Randstad. The Randstad area is one of the most densely populated regions of Europe, but still relatively free of urban sprawl. There are strict zoning laws. Population pressures are enormous, property values are high, and new housing is constantly under development on the edges of the built-up areas. Surprisingly, much of the province still has a rural character. The remaining agricultural land and natural areas are highly valued and protected. Most of the arable land is used for intensive agriculture, including horticulture and greenhouse agri-businesses. Image of Holland at home and abroad The predominance of Holland in the Netherlands has resulted in regionalism on the part of the other provinces. This is a reaction to the perceived threat that Holland poses to the identities and local cultures of the other provinces. The other provinces have a strong, and often negative,[9] image of Holland and the Hollanders, to whom certain qualities are ascribed within a mental geography, a conceptual mapping of spaces and their inhabitants.[10] On the other hand, some Hollanders take Holland's cultural dominance for granted and treat the concepts of "Holland" and the "Netherlands" as coincidental. Consequently, they see themselves not primarily as "Hollanders", but simply as "Dutch" (Nederlanders).[11] This phenomenon has been called "hollandocentrism".[12] Holland tends to be associated with a particular image. The stereotypical image of Holland is an artificial amalgam of tulips, windmills, clogs, cheese and traditional dress (klederdracht). As is the case with many stereotypes, this is far from the truth and reality of life in Holland. This can at least in part be explained by the active exploitation of these stereotypes in promotions of Holland and the Netherlands. In fact only in a few of the more traditional villages, such as Volendam and locations in the Zaan area, are the different costumes with wooden shoes still worn by some inhabitants.

The Dutch Have Solutions to Rising Seas. The World Is Watching
Whats New - Source: The Dutch Have Solutions to Rising Seas. The World Is Watching. In the waterlogged Netherlands, climate change is considered neither a hypothetical nor a drag on the economy. Instead, it’s an opportunity. By MICHAEL KIMMELMAN. ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands — The wind over the canal stirred up whitecaps and rattled cafe umbrellas. Rowers strained toward a finish line and spectators hugged the shore. Henk Ovink, hawkish, wiry, head shaved, watched from a V.I.P. deck, one eye on the boats, the other, as usual, on his phone. Mr. Ovink is the country’s globe-trotting salesman in chief for Dutch expertise on rising water and climate change. Like cheese in France or cars in Germany, climate change is a business in the Netherlands. Month in, month out, delegations from as far away as Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, New York and New Orleans make the rounds in the port city of Rotterdam. They often end up hiring Dutch firms, which dominate the global market in high-tech engineering and water management. That’s because from the first moment settlers in this small nation started pumping water to clear land for farms and houses, water has been the central, existential fact of life in the Netherlands, a daily matter of survival and national identity. No place in Europe is under greater threat than this waterlogged country on the edge of the Continent. Much of the nation sits below sea level and is gradually sinking. Now climate change brings the prospect of rising tides and fiercer storms. From a Dutch mind-set, climate change is not a hypothetical or a drag on the economy, but an opportunity. While the Trump administration withdraws from the Paris accord, the Dutch are pioneering a singular way forward. It is, in essence, to let water in, where possible, not hope to subdue Mother Nature: to live with the water, rather than struggle to defeat it. The Dutch devise lakes, garages, parks and plazas that are a boon to daily life but also double as enormous reservoirs for when the seas and rivers spill over. You may wish to pretend that rising seas are a hoax perpetrated by scientists and a gullible news media. Or you can build barriers galore. But in the end, neither will provide adequate defense, the Dutch say. And what holds true for managing climate change applies to the social fabric, too. Environmental and social resilience should go hand in hand, officials here believe, improving neighborhoods, spreading equity and taming water during catastrophes. Climate adaptation, if addressed head-on and properly, ought to yield a stronger, richer state. This is the message the Dutch have been taking out into the world. Dutch consultants advising the Bangladeshi authorities about emergency shelters and evacuation routes recently helped reduce the numbers of deaths suffered in recent floods to “hundreds instead of thousands,” according to Mr. Ovink. “That’s what we’re trying to do,” he said. “You can say we are marketing our expertise, but thousands of people die every year because of rising water, and the world is failing collectively to deal with the crisis, losing money and lives.” He ticks off the latest findings: 2016 was the warmest year on record; global sea levels rose to new highs. He proudly shows off the new rowing course just outside Rotterdam, where the World Rowing Championships were staged last summer. The course forms part of an area called the Eendragtspolder, a 22-acre patchwork of reclaimed fields and canals — a prime example of a site built as a public amenity that collects floodwater in emergencies. It is near the lowest point in the Netherlands, about 20 feet below sea level. With its bike paths and water sports, the Eendragtspolder has become a popular retreat. Now it also serves as a reservoir for the Rotte River Basin when the nearby Rhine overflows, which, because of climate change, it’s expected to do every decade. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/15/world/europe/climate-change-rotterdam.html?_r=0 Be sure to visit us at Twitter http://[email protected] Feel support us by visiting our website for additional information: link: http://stayingfittoday.com whatsnewmonty

dutch windmill de groenvelder
The Dutch have a special relationship with water. Their delta works, polders and dikes are famous in the whole world. A significant part of Holland is below sea level. That means that the Dutch have to pump continuously to keep their feet dry. In spite of the many automated pump houses that were built in the last decades, the old windmills still contribute to the water level in the Netherlands. These characteristic mills beautify the landscape and they are very attractive for tourists all over the world. This documentary is about one of of these old mills, called 'De Groenvelder', located at the threshold of a small village 'Groenveld' (60 km from Amsterdam). This mill was built around 1560 and still contributes to keeping the polder 'Valkkoog' dry. It keeps the groundwater on a fixed level which is safe for the foundations of buildings and for agriculture, Learn more about the old Dutch windmills and enjoy this documentary.

Tulip is considered national symbol (flower) of the Netherlands with over 1,500 varieties, accounting for nearly 80 percent of the world's tulips. Tulip, however, is not native to the Netherlands: it was imported from Turkey in the 16th century. During 'Tulip Mania' in the 1630s, the price of a single tulip bulb had been raised as much as a house before the economy collapsed, leaving huge crisis afterward. - Source 4. The national color is orange, taken from the House of Orange, who led the Dutch revolt against Spain and then became the Dutch royal family.

The windmills built the country – without them, Holland (the lowest but most important part of the Netherlands) would be very different today. - Source 10. The term “Go Dutch” is a joke about the practice of splitting bill when dating in Netherlands. The Dutch have two reasons for that. First is gender equality.

It features hundreds of blossoming show gardens that are admired by millions of visitors from all over the world. In the 16th century life on the ocean wave brought glorious times for the city of Edam that is now world famous for its cheese of the same name. More than thirty shipyards once prospered in the city and the fleet of legendary Dutch hero, Michiel De Ruyter, was built there. Mijmegen lies proudly on the banks of the River Waal. The origins of Holland’s oldest city are to be found in the Roman settlement of Noviomagum. The triangular market square of this university and Hanseatic town is dominated by the Waag House, a red-bricked building of Renaissance design. The Molens Van Kinderdijk is a fascinating landscape of windmills and a Unesco World Heritage Sight. Its nineteen windmills are world famous and of course typical of Holland.

20181006 ~ Flood Aware ~ Holland
① memo 20181006 ~ Flood Aware ~ Repairing and strengthening the dikes started this week here around Alphen , some 20 feet (6 meter) below sea level , in the Rhine-Meuse river delta of Holland
The Netherlands - The threat of rivers | Pays Bas - La menace des fleuves
A quarter of the Netherlands is below sea level. The Dutch polders, artificial land gained on water since the end of the 16th century, now represent more than 17% of the country’s surface, with dikes up to 12 m high. The University of Utrecht predicts that due to climate change, the sea level will rise by 1.3 m on the Dutch coastline by 2100. Extreme weather events (heavy rains, hailstorms ...) are also expected to become more frequent. Traumatized by the memory of the deadly floods of 1953, when the North Sea swamped Zealand to engulf 5% of the country and caused 1,800 casualties, the Netherlands undertook a "Delta Plan" of immense public works between 1957 and 1986, mainly to protect itself from the storms coming from the sea. But climate change now raises other questions. Due to the rising sea level, large rivers (Rhine, Meuse, Scheldt ...) that cross the south of this flat country struggle to reach the coast. The flood risk now comes from the inside, all the more since the fluvial waters are swollen by more intense rainfall and the melting European glaciers. 9 million Dutch people - more than half the population - now live in flood-prone areas, where 70% of the economy is also concentrated. How are the Netherlands preparing to face this new threat? --------- Un quart de la superficie des Pays-Bas est situé sous le niveau de la mer. Les polders néerlandais, étendues artificielles de terre gagnées sur l'eau depuis la fin du XVIe siècle, représentent aujourd'hui plus de 17 % de la surface du pays, avec des digues pouvant atteindre 12 m de haut. L’Université d’Utrecht prévoit qu’en raison du changement climatique, le niveau de la mer devrait monter de 1,3 m sur le littoral néerlandais d’ici 2100. Les phénomènes météorologiques extrêmes (pluies intenses, orages de grêle…) devraient aussi devenir plus fréquents. Traumatisés par le souvenir des inondations meurtrières de 1953, lorsque la mer du Nord a submergé la Zélande pour engloutir 5 % du pays et emporter plus de 1 800 victimes, les Pays-Bas ont entrepris entre 1957 et 1986 un « Plan Delta » d'immenses travaux publics pour se protéger principalement des tempêtes venues du large. Mais le changement climatique pose aujourd’hui d’autres questions. Avec l'élévation du niveau de la mer, les grands cours d’eau (Rhin, Meuse, Escaut…) qui traversent le sud de ce plat pays peinent à atteindre la côte. Le risque de submersion vient désormais de l'intérieur, d'autant que les eaux fluviales sont grossies par des pluies plus intenses. 9 millions de Néerlandais -plus de la moitié de la population- vivent aujourd'hui dans des zones inondables, où se concentre également 70 % de l'activité économique. Comment les Pays-Bas se préparent-ils à cette nouvelle menace ?
