Climate adaptation & resilience building study tour to the Netherlands – Expression of Interest open

Interested to join us & be part of unique study tour?

The design and program development for a 2 week study tour to the Netherlands in late October and early November this year is underway.  The focus is looking at learning from the Dutch experience in building integrated water management solutions and now through the lenses of what this means in the face of extreme flood, drought, sea level rise and temperature extremes that climate change is forecast to bring.

This experiential based tour, will not only provide face to face case study inspections of a mix of City, regional towns, coastal and rural landscapes – but also be a platform for joint discussions with our Dutch hosts on the new platforms that they and professionals in other part of the world need to better prepare.

In the second week the delegation will be part of the Amsterdam International Water Week Conference and Trade Fair, with a reflections workshop of the study tour learnings being part of the program.

This study tour is targeting Australian professionals – with a water interest from a diverse mix of professionals roles – from architecture, NRM, water utility, urban design, disaster management & much more.  In addition we plan to have colleagues from Myanmar and Indonesia join us to make a truly international delegation – where we can also learn from within the group.

Tour dates are Monday 28 October to Thursday 7 November.  The program includes all your accommodation and travel needs, conference registration and networking with a unique mix of Dutch water management specialist in government, private sector and research.
