A unique concept of Green Adaptation is the Sand Engine, by the Dutch Building with Nature innovation program. A huge nourishment of 20 million m3 of sand has been deposited in front of the Dutch Delfland coast, after which wind, waves and sea currents will naturally disperse the sand. This will contribute to the coastal safety in the long term and in addition create areas for nature and recreation. In this approach, maintenance costs are drastically reduced compared to traditional coastal defense structures, as natural coastal processes are exploited.
