Background

Useful scientific innovations are instrumental to support river delta planning and management, helping citizens, working professionals and policy makers to jointly address critical delta challenges including floods, salinization, droughts, and many more.

Outcomes

With support of the UDW programme and participating UDW projects Involving Bangladesh, Vietnamese and Dutch partners, we have organised a tool lab session on 8 July 2021 on how to use MOTA tool and the Waterapps FarmerSupport app to analyse and develop solutions in the domains of delta planning, climate change adaptation.

We have also created this video to explain both innovative tools:
