Every field, every farm, every stream has a part to play in reducing flooding, water conservation and erosion control

Adaption to Climate Change

Awareness & involvement raising

TRIPLE C aims to increase the involvement of private stakeholders in flood management, by raising the awareness of those stakeholders to how they can contribute to improve the climate resilience of catchments with individual actions and private initiatives on their land. Triple C aims to move away from the traditional approach to water management (public action on public land). In contrast, Triple C introduces a collaborative approach, involving and stimulating private actors to allow public investments on private lands. This new collaborative approach ultimately aims to stimulate private actor initiatives on private land, to supplement government intervention.

To achieve this collaborative approach, Triple C partners will establish catchment-based networks for discussions with stakeholders. The networks will consist of intermediary bodies, as well as individual landowners, farmers, residents and municipal representatives, water managers and practitioners. Within the networks discussions will be held with private actors to promote cost-effective natural flood management measures and discuss proven anti-erosion techniques. In addition, practical onsite demonstration events, site/study visits and land management workshops will be held to demonstrate the proposed solutions in practice and raise awareness.
