The Netherlands is inextricably linked to its fights against the water. In fact, 26% of the Netherlands is below sea-level. In addition, 29% of the land is sensitive to river flooding. Fortunately, we have dikes and dunes in the Netherlands to protect us. The Dutch have learned to deal with all that water around them. It even brought prosperity to the Netherlands. For example, the Dutch waterway network was used for the transit channel of goods to and from the rest of Europe. As a result, the Dutch port of Rotterdam was created. In fact, one of the biggest ports in the world. The Dutch are also ahead of other countries in terms of land reclamation and the construction of dikes. As a result, Dutch companies all over the world are asked for land reclamation jobs and the construction of dikes.
