Integrated knowledge for future delta life

Deltas are attractive areas to live in and therefore densely populated. However they are threatened by human impact and climate change. Dealing with these threats requires a solid understanding of how natural and societal systems interact. Future Deltas developed integrated knowledge for future delta life.

The Future Deltas programme is now being continued in the Water, Climate & Future Deltas hub.
