Welcome to the Delta Alliance website

For the resilience of deltas worldwide

Delta Alliance is an international knowledge-driven network organization with the mission of improving the resilience of the world’s deltas. With increasing pressure from population growth, industrialization and a changing climate, it is more important than ever that these valuable and vulnerable locations increase their resilience to changing conditions. Delta Alliance brings people together who live and work in deltas. They can benefit from each other’s experience and expertise and as such contribute to an increased resilience of their delta region.

Delta Alliance has ten network wings where activities are focused: California Bay (USA), Ciliwung and Mahakam (Indonesia), Mekong (Vietnam), Rhine-Meuse (the Netherlands), Nile (Egypt), Pantanal (Brazil), Ganges-Brahmaputra (Bangladesh), Mississippi (USA), Yangtze (China) and Parana (Argentina). Additional network wings will soon be included in Delta Alliance to further benefit from the wealth of information available in these deltas.

Future Deltas Summer School (27-31 August 2018) Are you working on river flooding, coastal dynamics, land subsidence, salt water intrusion, livelihoods, governance or land use, environmental or water law? In this course an opportunity is offered to further explore your specific working field, framed within a broader context of natural and social processes affecting delta systems and delta life. With an interdisciplinary team of teachers, researchers, students, professionals and practitioners. Drivers of change in deltas, impacts of these changes, and sustainable management solutions, by means of lectures, working group sessions, sharing experiences, and excursions in the Rhine-Meuse delta (NL) will be explored.
