Paddebeek wetland - small scale tidal wetland restoration in the freshwater zone of the Sea Scheldt (Zeeschelde)

Degree of synergistic effects and conflicts according to uses

Some corn field had to be replaced for the construction of the Paddebeek, but the area is so small (less than 1.6ha) that there was not a real conflict. The development of wetlands like the Paddebeek has the opportunity to combine nature conservation with flood protection. However, the Paddebeek is a small scale pilot project without any substantial influence on the Scheldt estuary.
