The subject of this paper is sustainable development (SD) of polder systems in a changing climate in different scenarios of socio-economic development. Scenario analysis of polder systems was based on the analysis of best practices of polders development in foreign countries. There are three approaches to increasing the resilience of polder systems in the terms of environmental engineering: (1) improving the reliability of structures without changes of the management of natural resources; (2) strengthening only the cost-effective facilities and rejection of others; (3) changing the type of natural resource management.
KEYWORDS: polders, adaptation, climate change, sustainable development.
