Related side event Adaptation Futures

At Deltares in Delft we would like to share with you the latest insights on climate adaptation in deltas and river basins. An inspiring day just before the Adaptation Future Conference in Rotterdam begins.

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 a 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.
