Samenvatting

An assignment was given by “Provincie Zeeland.” Specifically the assignment is to research how the Province of Zeeland and its stakeholders can improve the facilitation process towards municipalities on the topic of the implementation of the delta program, “spatial adaptation.” A main question has been set-up, it reads: "How can the Province of Zeeland improve facilitation of municipalities to enhance their Spatial Adaptation process in relation to climate change and which spatial instruments can be used to mainstream this municipal Spatial Adaptation process?"
To this topic a research was performed, in the form of a graduation thesis. The topic of this thesis is related to research performed to a current problem/lack of current information. In this case this is the topic of the Delta decision and the province’s guidance towards the municipalities’ spatial implementation. Since it is a present day topic and not much research has been performed to it. It stresses the importance of Province of Zeeland to gather information on the topic how regional facilitation towards this topic can be improved.
From the perspective of the Province of Zeeland it is preferred that the municipalities within Zeeland, do adopt the Delta plan spatial adaptation as soon as possible. This should go hand in hand with a smooth municipal implementation. On this moment in time it is often heard that various municipalities have difficulties with this new Delta plan. Various often heard reasons are: lack of capacity, lack of knowledge, lack of information, lack of practical examples etc.
The Provincie Zeeland, together with other governmental stakeholders do have the role in this process to improve the current situation by facilitating current absent factors. These absent factors within the research are represented by limitations towards municipal SA mainstreaming.
As input for the research, various analyses and inventories were performed. Validation of the research was an important factor. Therefore after the various analyses were performed, outcomes were compared to each other. Within this research in-depth interviews with municipalities towards the limitations of SA played an important role. It is important to state that the most important methods of research were literature studies and interviews. Since both were complementary to each other, various missing links could be filled in.
The Province of Zeeland can do various things to improve facilitation of municipalities to enhance their adaptation process. These are: Have a more steering role. Help providing information to municipalities mainly on using local structural adaptation methods and climate scenario's. Increasing awareness especially among RO'ers by making use of o.a. events. Take away uncertainty by giving provincial guarantees. Furthermore it would be helpful to bring municipalities in contact with external parties such as spatial advice or architect agencies which can supply information project costs win-win situations etc. This is one of the main primary concerns and limitations for which facilitation could be effective within the mainstreaming process.
