Opdracht beschrijving

Rotterdam aims to make the city and harbors climate proof and habitable and one approach is to look at water management. For example, healthy marine life and water can help counteract rising water temperatures. The city of Rotterdam is currently improving the water quality in its harbors, which already looks very promising. The banks and quays are also undergoing changes to become eco-friendly. Now the next step is to improve the harbor basins into vibrant and rich underwater areas where fish, crustaceans and perhaps even beavers can flourish. How can the aquatic life be improved, specifically in tidal rivers?

De onderzoeksvraag is:

What are effective measures to improve the quality of aquatic life in Rotterdam?

Mogelijke deelvragen zijn:

  • What (successful) projects have other cities, countries or areas implemented?
  • How feasible are current ideas?
  • Are there other options or ideas that could work?
