Wuhan learns from Dutch expertise

Nederlands versie

A delegation from the Chinese city of Wuhan followed a training program to learn about Waterfronts NL’s particularly Dutch approach to integrated water planning.

The delegation of representatives from the Wuhan Urban Land Use and Spatial Planning Research Centre was hosted by Waterfronts NL founding member KuiperCompagnons for ten days. The programme included presentations, workshops, and visiting Dutch waterfront projects to see theory in action. The purpose of the 10-day training course was to provide insight for the Chinese urban and regional planners into the uniquely Dutch way of planning and design, where water management plays a central role.

The Wuhan delegation also visited the Waterfronts NL Information Centre in Lelystad, which brings together Dutch expertise on global waterfront development challenges. The Chinese guests were very enthusiastic about the Dutch approach and experience in the field of integrated spatial planning and water. This distinctive quality of Dutch planning and engineering companies is being increasingly recognized worldwide.
