Delta Programme Knowledge Conference 2012

3-4-2012 VCAPS at Delta Programme Knowledge Conference, Delft

On April 3 the Delta Programme Knowledge Conference 2012 was held at the Delft University of Technology. Professionals involved in the Delta Programme in both the Netherlands and similar foreign countries explored scientific, international and practical solutions and strategies to ensure that the Netherlands remains safe (from water) and attractive far into the future.

Enrico Moens from Grontmij presented the project ‘Ho Chi Minh City, Towards the Sea with Climate Change Adaptation’ at the international part of the conference. In his presentation explained the climate problems in HCMC, the programme objectives, and the approach that VCAPS has chosen to develop and implement climate proof solutions. The several similarities and differences that exist in between the Dutch and Vietnamese situation were subject to discussion at the conference.
