How to adapt to climate change - let us inspire you

Side event Deltares, 9 May in Delft
At Deltares in Delft, we would like to share the latest insights about climate adaptation in deltas and river basins. An inspiring day just before the start of the Adaptation Futures Conference in Rotterdam.

Deltares supports public and private bodies, and society as a whole, in their ambitions for the sustainable development of delta areas, and helps them manage their risks and build resilience. With our powerful  software tools, we can clarify risks and develop the appropriate response measures. We can build resilience with you by analysing threats from extreme events, identifying challenges in an uncertain future and evaluate possible solutions and pathways for policy options.  It is our conviction that, by pooling knowledge and all our efforts, we can tackle the adaptation challenges that lie ahead.

Come and visit our research facilities, and meet our experts and your fellow delegates at our parallel sessions during the conference. Your ride to/from Rotterdam-Delft will be arranged.

We hope to see you 9 May in Delft.
