Future Deltas CANCELLED

Date: 06 July 2020 - 10 July 2020
Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands

River flooding, coastal dynamics, land subsidence, salt water intrusion, livelihoods, governance and environmental law are all important topics for the sustainable management of coastal river deltas worldwide, which are currently under pressure of human impact and climate change. In this course we offer a unique opportunity to examine natural and social processes affecting delta systems and delta life. With an interdisciplinary team of researchers, students, professionals and practitioners we will explore drivers of change in deltas, impacts of these changes, and sustainable management solutions by means of lectures, group sessions, and excursions in the Rhine-Meuse delta (NL).
