Active Discussion Session on Adaptive Delta Management In this session we explored how science and practice can be reconnected to advance Adaptive Delta Management and how transferable ADM is to other Deltas in the world. Speakers from government, knowledge institutes and businesses shared their experience and put forward propositions as a starting point for an interactive debate with the audience. The session was organised by Delft Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative (DIMI) of Delft University and the Delta Alliance.
The presentations marked a start of an active and lively discussion amongst the participants. The Dutch partners in the Delta Alliance will organise follow-up discussion sessions on how ADM, as a tool, could fill the knowledge gap on integrated planning and governance.
