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, with the help for instance of network wings.

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.

DIMI on Tour 2015! Adaptive Delta Management Theory and practice (4 June 2015) This session of DIMI on tour focusses on Adaptive Delta Management (ADM). Deltas are generally recognized as vulnerable to climate change and therefore a salient topic in adaptation science. Deltas are also highly dynamic systems viewed from physical (erosion, sedimentation, subsidence), social (demographic), economic (trade), infrastructures (transport, energy, metropolization) and cultural (multi-ethnic) perspectives.
