The development is divided into three stages: 1) the building of a new landscape based on the original topography; river estuaries. Where the desedimentation process provides a basis for new topography and programme. 2) In cooperation with a biologist, a biotope with vegetation is stimulated to grow in this environment, creating vegetation on the sediments; an ecosystem is made. 3) Users together with specialists will be introduced to the area and begin the cultivation of the delta – landscape.
