Vietnam: Deltares to Participate at World Delta Dialogues Conference

Deltares is coordinator of the Dutch presentations of the DELTAS2013-World Delta Dialogues II Conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from 19 to 23 May 2013.

The Dutch presentations will include the results of the ‘Mekong Delta Plan’ and ‘Climate Proofing of Delta Cities’ (a comparative perspective on New Orleans and Ho Chi Minh City). Another relevant topic that will be presented by the Dutch is: ‘Building with Nature & Living with Water: Solutions for the Mekong River and Vietnam Coastal Areas’.

The aim of the conference is to stimulate broad participation and promote substantial input at the conference to contribute to cooperation and data sharing between delta countries.

Focusing on the world’s delta regions through the lens of the Mekong River, the conference will identify best practices and comprehensive strategies for sustaining deltas in order to support the intertwined goals of political stability, economic growth and environmental health. The conference will formulate a ‘Communiqué for the World Deltaic Cooperation’ intended as an agenda for cooperation between delta countries.

The DELTAS2013-World Delta Dialogues II Conference is organised by America’s Wetland Foundation and supported by the governments of the Vietnam, the Unites States of America and the Netherlands. In 2010 the first World Delta Dialogues Conference took place in New Orleans. More than 400 business leaders, scientists, engineers, planners and government and NGO representatives from all continents applied their expertise to the sustainability of delta regions.
