The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Deltas

Adaptive Delta Management Webinar

Delta regions and coastal cities are becoming increasingly vulnerable to climate change, rising sea levels, and growing populations. Planning infrastructure and policy, therefore, requires visualizing future pressures on infrastructure and environment. This tough task is made even more difficult by the fact that delta ecosystems are inherently dynamic and uncertain. Moreover, economic and/or environmental priorities do not always align with adaptation measures.

An upcoming webinar will discuss Adaptive Delta Management (ADM), a dynamic approach to assessing climate change impacts and planning adaptation measures. ADM is configured for dealing with uncertainties, linking current decision making to future choices. Although its prime focus is on delta areas, the approach can be applied beyond deltas.
