Past Events

Webinar: Adaptive Delta Management: Opportunities and Barriers (29 June 2017) The world’s river deltas and coastal cities are becoming increasingly vulnerable due to pressures from climate change, rising sea levels, and growing populations. Governments plan infrastructure and policies to achieve resilience to (future) pressures endangering a safe living environment in deltas. This webinar aims to identify under which conditions and with what modifications ADM can be successfully applied elsewhere. Based on experience and expert opinions, the applicability of ADM in other adaptive planning contexts such as Vietnam, Bangladesh and the U.S. will be reviewed.

Webinar: Rural urban linkages combining safety and quality of living in delta cities, part 2 (16 June 2017) In the first webinar a framework of combined urban and delta development has been developed.
