Webinar programme

In the first webinar a framework of combined urban and delta development has been developed.
Now it will be further developed by in depth analysis of two cases: Hatirjheel in Dhaka and Lentse Bocht in Nijmegen. Both used the urban natural system as a basis for urban development, combining different investments in reducing flood risks and ameliorating green and urban quality.

A question and answer session will be included in the webinar and will be concluded with a reflection on the framework presented.
