Report on Regional Training Workshop: Challenges and Approaches in Delta Planning and Management From 19-23 October 2014 a delta training and planning workshop was organised. The workshop was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Objective of the workshop was the direct South – South exchange on objectives and challenges in delta planning taking into account similarities and differences among deltas in South East Asia. The 34 participants of the workshops had governmental, non-governmental and private sector backgrounds. In total 30% of the participants were alumni of Wageningen UR or UNESCO-IHE.

Final Report: Jakarta Climate Adaptation Tools (JCAT) This final report (Delta Alliance report number 8) provides an overview of the different activities, methods, and tools carried out in the JCAT project. This project has contributed to knowledge and capacity building in three main ways: through education, workshops and joint research with stakeholders, and scientific research (KfC HSINT02a project).

Towards a Comprehensive Framework for Adaptive Delta Management This report provides an overview of new approaches emerging in several deltas that can be labelled under the heading of Adaptive Delta Management (ADM). Adaptive management can be defined as a structured, iterative process of robust decision making in the face of uncertainty, with an aim to reduce uncertainty over time via system monitoring. ADM encourages an integrated and flexible approach to land and water management with the aim to reduce vulnerability and limit the risk of over- or underinvestment in future challenges such as flood risk management and freshwater supplies. The report shows that ADM is developing rapidly into a fascinating new type of decision making under an uncertain future. The reasons for using the new approach are convincing, the theoretical foundation is growing and the results on the ground are promising. ADM can be captured as a cyclic process of which the overall design does not differ much from traditional planning steps. However, the approach and methods within each step contain new elements, such as long term scenario building, adaptation pathway developments, signposts and triggers.
