SP 8.10 Delta approaches: adaptive delta management and other support tools for improving resilience of the world’s deltas

Thursday 12 May, 11.00 – 12.45, Beurs Lounge

Delta Alliance (DA) is a knowledge driven network of organisations in over 15 deltas, whose mission is to improve the resilience of the world’s deltas and reduce vulnerability to flooding and ecosystem degradation. In a process of co-creation between scientists and practitioners from various deltas, the Delta Approach is being developed consisting of policy and technical tools such as Adaptive Delta Management (ADM). In this session,the DA would like to take a next step in this co-creation process. We will present the developments so far and facilitate an active knowledge exchange between the participants on effective tools. After the session the results and the (links to) the tools will be presented on the DA website.
