Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This project in Kentville, Kings County, Nova Scotia illustrates how government, university, and industry partners collectively implemented a nature based approach to dyke and dykeland management that, by moving and reshaping a section of dyke, makes room for flooding along a tidal river, increases wetland habitat, improves arable land quality and access, and enhances a community recreation amenity. The case study describes the project context and site; community vulnerabilities to hazard; the local area land uses and planning context; project development, design, and implementation; and project benefits, barriers, and drivers and lessons learned.
