As a response to the recent floodings in British Columbia, Ontario, and in the Netherlands, the Netherlands Water Partnership together with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ottawa and the Consulate-General of the Netherlands in Vancouver and Toronto, is organising a Flood Management Workshop for professionals in local governance, the water sector, landscape design and planning and management.
Please note that this event can be attended by invitation only.
During a two-hour virtual workshop, a selection of organisations from the Dutch water sector will present their perspectives on various flood management programmes and projects, such as the Room for the River programme and the Meandering Meuse, among others. In addition, the workshop will also focus upon flood risk perception, extreme weather events and early warning systems. With expert speakers from both the Dutch public and private sector, as well as several knowledge institutes, the workshop will provide a holistic overview of the complex and interdisciplinary collaboration that characterises these projects.
The workshop will consist of a plenary part with presentations from the Dutch water sector, followed by interactive break-out sessions guided by our expert speakers. The aim of this workshop is to highlight innovative practices, different approaches and lessons learned in flood management in the context of flooding events in the Netherlands and Canada. The set-up of the programme allows for fruitful discussions, interaction with expert speakers and therefore new ideas and solutions to water challenges.
