Sinking cities II - Example cases, A step-by-step approach to address land subsidence in urbanising deltas In many coastal and delta cities, land subsidence exceeds absolute sea level rise up to a factor of ten. Without action, parts of Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and numerous other coastal cities will sink below sea level. Increased flood risk and other widespread impacts of land subsidence result in damage totalling billions of dollars per year. This brochure provides a more in-depth step-wise guidance in addressing high rates of subsidence, illustrated by a number of case studies and actionable practices. The lessons learned from these experiences provide valuable information and inspiration for decision makers and experts to address subsidence in urbanising deltas. This brochure is made by Deltares (T. Bucx, G. Erkens, S. Hommes, S. Kok, G.J. Ellen, C. v.d. Guchte) in cooperation with and supported by the Delta Alliance (K. van Nieuwaal, Ottelien van Steenis) and its affiliated institutes University Utrecht (Hans Middelkoop), Wageningen University & Research (Catharien Terwisscha van Scheltinga), IHE Delft (Chris Zevenbergen) and TU Delft (Jos Timmermans).

Delta Waters - Research to Support Integrated Water and Environmental Management in the Lower Mississippi River (2013) Placed in a larger, global perspective, research on integrated water management in the Lower Mississippi River bears comparison with issues faced and addressed in other large deltas around the world. What insights might they offer for the Mississippi delta, and what might the Mississippi delta offer in scientific understanding and expertise for other regions? This report’s sponsor, The Water Institute of the Gulf (Water Institute), asked the National Research Council’s Water Science and Technology Board to address these questions in this study. Work of the Delta Alliance is frequently cited to by this publication.
