The Deltas in Times of Climate Change Conference will be a major stepping stone in the development of the international Delta Alliance Network. The conference will formalize that network and build momentum and content for increased international cooperation between delta regions.
The Delta Alliance will be launched on Thursday 30 September with high-level representatives of California, Indonesia, the Netherlands and Vietnam. Examples of successful cooperation between delta regions will be showcased. Further cooperative activities will be defined during the conference, making use of the top experts from deltas around the world present for that the event. The Delta Alliance is working closely with the World Estuary Alliance (WEA), and will use the conference to identify opportunities to work more closely with WEA and other international initiatives to work on safe, vital and sustainable deltas in times of climate change. Most importantly, the conference will provide new impulses to the growing international community working towards resilient river delta regions.
