Climate Adaptation and Resilience Study Tour to the Netherlands
In conjunction with Amsterdam International Water Week and Aquatech 2019!
From October 28th until November 8th 2019, JOIN US ON A UNIQUE 2-WEEK STUDY TOUR OF THE NETHERLANDS. In this immersion of Dutch water innovation, build your leadership skills on solutions for climate change impacts, see the ingredients for collaborative effort and go home with connections that will back your local adaptation efforts.
The tour will have an experiential learning focus. Not only will we learn from the hundred of years of Dutch adaptation to extreme water threats, but as an international diverse group we will debate the resilience building options that the Dutch also need to address rising drought conditions and community response to potential vulnerability - while also extrapolating the resilience building pathways needed in other parts of the Asia Pacific such as Australia, Myanmar and Indonesia.
Tour regional and major cities to see and learn first-hand, how Dutch flood protection and adaptation measures have evolved and are being implemented. Plus as part of the Amsterdam International Water Week, we will take part in the International conference and field trips.
