Abstract

The Scheldt InformationCenter acts as an information platform for the estuary of the river Scheldt. This center is active in The Netherlands and recently also in Flanders. Its area of interest concerns the tide-related part of the river Scheldt, i.e. from Ghent (B) to the mouth in Vlissingen (NL). The main task of the Scheldt InformationCenter is putting information about the estuary area at the disposal of everybody interested in the subject. Additionally, the institute acts as a contact point. The Scheldt InformationCenter contributes also in popularising less accessible reports and publications and has therefore an interface function between the public authorities, the scientific community and the public at large. Coordinating Scheldt-related projects is another task of the institute. In all activities, the different functions of the estuary, safety, policy and management are central issues. By informing everybody about the river Scheldt, the institute hopes to enlarge the involvement and public awareness of this estuary, a river so important for Sealand (NL) as well as Flanders (B).
