This project aims to investigate whether where and how the channels in Friesland could give rise to sustainable area development from a technical (water quality and water quantity), physical-spatial and socioeconomic perspective. The landscape in and surrounding the channels and the features in it could be made more resilient by storing more water in wet periods so that it can be used in drier periods. The combination with other features in the area could trigger a reinforcing synergetic effect. For example, a water-storing feature could be combined with new forms of agriculture, the circular economy, the housing economy and the leisure economy. Agriculture will experience positive effects as a result of the availability of sufficient clean water in otherwise drier periods.
