The Netherlands has built thousands of kilometres of dykes, dunes and barriers to protect its low-lying land from the North Sea. Today, as climate change threatens a devastating rise in sea levels and more violent weather, Dutch expertise is increasingly in demand from vulnerable countries around the world.

Netherlands. Rise & fall of the Dutch East India company https://ai-tube.com/videoai/rjPf5PS5URt

After the defeat of the French in 1814, a new United Kingdom of the Netherlands was created, which eventually split one more time during the Belgian Revolution of 1830–1839, giving three modern nations, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. - Wiki

SLR will be more than 0,5 m by 2100? Make that 1,0 m or maybe 1,5 m!

The description is somewhat misleading. We did built a lot dykes and levee and other structures, but we didn't "Build" the dunes.

Fire and Water can serves and destroy depending who’s in control,like our life outcomes,it also depends on who’s in control too.Most of us don’t have a plan for our life and so,someone else is going to plan for us,which is always not too good.We all breathe the same air and has the same amount of times available,it’s depends on what we do with our times,invest wisely or squander it.Don’t blame Heaven.

well not entirely true ...the flood protection was fine on paper in 1953. They just did not have time to catch up with the damage caused by 5 years of neglect and battle during world war 2.

The Great Wall of Louisiana Going Dutch to help conquer 2 days ago   42:12

The IHNC Lake Borgne Surge Barrier also called the Great Wall of Louisiana is a storm surge barrier constructed near the confluence of and across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet near New Orleans. The barrier runs generally north-south from a point just east of Michoud Canal on the north bank of the GIWW and just south of the existing Bayou Bienvenue flood control structure. Navigation gates where the barrier crosses the GIWW and Bayou Bienvenue reduce the risk of storm surge coming from Lake Borgne and/or the Gulf of Mexico. Another navigation gate (Seabrook Floodgate) has been constructed in the Seabrook vicinity where the IHNC meets Lake Pontchartrain to block a storm surge from entering the IHNC from the Lake.
