VCAPS Members

The key to success in this project is to effectively combine the Dutch and Vietnamese knowledge and experience within the Vietnamese context. The VCAPS-consortium was established to bring together proven experience and methods to effectively support the Vietnamese government in developing a Climate Adaptation Strategy.

VCAPS consists of: Grontmij (lead partner) and Witteveen+Bos (both with extensive experience in integrated, adaptive urban and port development a.o. in Vietnam), Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM-VU, with a central role in the Connecting Delta cities network and specialised in developing training programs on climate adaptation), Ecorys (leading in socio-economic development and having a large network in the Port of Rotterdam), Bosch Slabbers, Landscape + Urban Design (spatial planning and interactive design studios) and Urban Solutions (spatial planning and stakeholder involvement methods).

In various combinations we have successfully worked on climate adaptation strategies for e.g. Rotterdam, Utrecht, Den Haag, Almere, HCMC, New Orleans, Jakarta, Shanghai and Melbourne. Together, we are a portal to state of the art knowledge on the climate proof development of delta cities worldwide and to networks on climate adaptation.
