Abstract (in English)

For centuries the Dutch live with water, they protect themselves against water and they make land of water; a rich tradition which became an important trademark. Therefore one of the main UNESCO world heritage themes in The Netherlands is ‘Land of Water’. History brought the Dutch not only their water management-reputation; Hansje Brinker, construction works as dikes, polders, windmills and pumping stations. The water management approach was also the origin of Dutch consensus policy.
