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.

The survival and well being of the Indian nation depends largely upon sustainable development where a sustainable water supply and sanitation systems are essential requirements. A paradigm shift that leads from the ‘FLUSH & FORGET’ systems to ‘RECYCLE’ in consonance with a ‘WASTE TO WEALTH’ approach is therefore essential. There is an acute shortage of water and power, in fact a near crisis situation for water, in some parts of India. Innovative, decentralized solutions that are inexpensive and which can save water have to be developed without any further delay. Among the various sanitation concepts, Ecological Sanitation (Ecosan), is a holistic approach to sanitation and water management and is the most significant and viable solution.

The effects of drought are due both to the physical nature of the hazard, and to society´s ability to manage the associated risks. Droughts have often been dealt with in a reactive manner rather than by applying a pre-emptive management approach that allows the effective use of all available information. Policy development related to national and regional management of drought is generally unsatisfactory and even lacking in most countries. Likewise, drought early warning, consisting of monitoring and prediction, is inadequate in most regions and there is insufficient capacity in many drought-prone countries to use drought prediction results and tools effectively in management practice.
