Duality in Dutch climate adaptation participation

Flood risk management in the Netherlands is experiencing a shift from formal top-down approaches towards interactive and participatory approaches. Involving the public has multiple objectives and the underlying processes are important to consider. This article analyses two most-different cases to show how different approaches to public participation achieve different objectives. One case is top-down led while the other has a more interactive approach. They each achieve their specific aims but fail to integrate wider objectives in the outcomes. Combining key participatory design elements from both approaches could improve results for climate change adaptation in the future.
