Beira experiences annual floods caused by extremely heavy rainfall. In the Green Infra project, a solution to this problem is offered in line with the ‘Building with Nature’ concept. This means that innovative instruments and approaches have been developed to reduce flood risks by using green, rather than grey, solutions.
In this programme it is crucial to show local stakeholders that green infrastructure is a very attractive alternative to traditional measures. In order to do so, local stakeholders have been closely involved throughout all stages of the project. Witteveen+Bos is working on this project with other partners, our main role being to bring in expertise on engineering and upscaling.
