RISC-KIT Coordinator features on CBS News

Sea change: How the Dutch confront the rise of the oceans


 Ap Van Dongeren at the Deltares Delta Flume, Delft, Netherlands.

 

RISC-KIT coordinator, Ap van Dongeren, Deltares, recently featured on CBS News, Sunday Morning programme, describing how the Netherlands tackles the threat of sea level rise.
Deltares has worked with clients in 140 different countries, including the United States.

Ap van Dongeren, a coastal flooding expert with Deltares, says all of their designs are assuming a rise in sea levels. "And that will come with higher waves, so you have to figure that all into your design," he said.
