Round table session held on Delta Approach In this round table sessions representatives of Dutch government, private sector and knowledge institutes discussed 'The Delta Approach'. The central question was: "To which extend can generic steps and tools be identified to increase the resilience of deltas?" Outcomes can be found in this report. Outcomes of this session will be shared and discussed during the Adaptation Futures conference in Rotterdam (May 10-13, 2016).

Publication: Hydraulic engineering in the social-ecological delta: understanding the interplay between social, ecological, and technological systems in the Dutch delta by means of “delta trajectories” Several of the world's largest deltas have recently been conceptualized as social-ecological delta systems. Although such conceptualizations are valuable in emphasizing complex interaction between social actors and ecological processes in deltas, they do not go into specific dynamics that surround technological developments in the hydraulic domain. By drawing from concepts originating in socio-technical systems research, we stress the importance of technology, particularly the domain of hydraulic engineering, in shaping a delta’s future.
