Samenvatting

In coastal and low-lying vulnerable delta cities, such as the
Rotterdam Metropolitan region and Metropolitan Manila, there has been an
increase in vulnerability of urban flooding and water quality problems.
New approaches address the current and future effects of climate change
and increase urban quality, reduce vulnerability and increase water quality.
New arrangements for international cooperation are set up in order to
address these problems in the project ‘IWASTO’ (‘to correct and to
prevent’) where several organisations from the Philippines and The
Netherlands join forces to rehabilitate rivers and introduce new
innovations for water quality monitoring and waste collection using the
‘Research Design and Manufacaturing (RDM)’ approach. One of the
concrete results from this RDM approach in 2016 is the development and
implementation of the ‘Longganisa’, a waste collection tool that was
designed by a Dutch-Philippine team. In addition, the waterquality was
measured and mapped with innovating methods using apps in order to
locate and prioritize highly polluted areas. In the near future measures will
be implemented to rehabilitate the rivers in Manila and a knowledge
exchange forum will be set up to share the best management practices on
international scale in countries as Indonesia, India and China.
