Webinar: 'Squeeze an orange, but do not squeeze the delta's coast please!' on 8 October 2015 'Coastal squeeze' is a disease that has caused serious trouble along most coasts around our world. Massive urbanisation and occupation of the land-water transition has caused an enormous stress on the land-water ecosystems. One of the speakers is Marcel Stive from TU Delft. He will explain what is meant with "coastal squeeze" and will give a presentation on the current situation of deltas and it's management.

Active Discussion Session on Adaptive Delta Management In this session, it was 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.
