History and origins of land reclamation in the Netherlands. The Netherlands has a coastline that is constantly changing with erosion caused by wind and water. The Dutch people inhabiting the region had at first built primitive dikes to protect their settlements from the sea.

In the northern parts of the Netherlands sea levels fell exposing new land at a rate of 5–10 meters per year between. The Zuiderzee Works (Dutch: Zuiderzeewerken) is a man-made system of dams and dikes, land reclamation and water drainage work, in total the largest hydraulic engineering project undertaken by the Netherlands during the twentieth century.

The project involved the damming of the Zuiderzee, a large, shallow inlet of the North Sea, and the reclamation of land in the newly enclosed water using polders. Over many centuries the Dutch have fought against this loss of land. Three stages in the historical development of land drainage and reclamation activities are presented.

The first stage was in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries when many lakes north of Amsterdam were drained and reclaimed for agricultural use. The country is indeed low-lying and remarkably flat, with large expanses of lakes, rivers, and canals. Some 2, square miles (6, square km) of the Netherlands consist of reclaimed land, the result of a process of careful water management dating back to medieval the coasts, land was reclaimed from the sea, and, in the interior, lakes and marshes were drained, especially.
