Integrated delta management

Home » Vibrant Coasts and Deltas » Our Approach » Integrated delta management

Deltas have traditionally been economic development hotspots, yet ecologically fragile. Integrated management approaches, built on an understanding of the linkages between riverine, coastal and marine processes, as well as role of ecosystems in sustaining these linkages is crucial to the management of these landscapes.

Through an integrated analysis of the hydrological and ecological processes across the delta, we provide knowledgebase on ecosystem values and how these values can be sustained. An essential element is to bring information about local risks and local solutions into the wider landscape planning processes and investment decisions.
