Upcoming Delta Alliance events and delta events with DA participation

Boekpresentatie: De toekomst van water en klimaat in beeld (19 april 2018) Hoe zien de water-gerelateerd uitdagingen in de wereld eruit in 2050? Waar zal te veel, te weinig of te vies water een grotere rol gaan spelen? En wat betekent een groeiende wereldbevolking en klimaatverandering voor de beschikbaarheid van energie, voedsel, sanitatie en migratie. Waar beïnvloedt dit zelfs mogelijk conflicten? De uitnodiging en mogelijkheid tot aanmelden is te vinden op de PBL website.

EGU session: Sustainable management of river deltas under pressure (8-13 April 2018) Invitation to submit an abstract to the session ‘Sustainable management of river deltas under pressure’ (Session GM6.6/BG7.6/HS5.17), to be held at the EGU General Assembly 2018, 8-13 April 2018, Vienna, Austria. The aim of this session is to bring together knowledge of both natural and societal processes (inter)acting in a delta, and their impacts, which is essential to find sustainable solutions for delta management. We invite contributions to this session on (1) human-induced processes driving change in river deltas, (2) impacts of these changing conditions, and (3) optimising delta management solutions, in particular by using an interdisciplinary approach.
Future Deltas
Adaptation Futures 2018, Dialogues for Solutions (18-21 June 2018) The conference will bring together diverse actors working in climate adaptation to learn from and stimulate each other in what they do and how they do it: academic and applied researchers, professionals in consulting and other roles, policymakers and managers, civil society, business, those working in international bodies and multilateral bodies.
