Room : Room - Auditorium

During this one-day seminar, top experts in the region will guide you through their highly engaging and interesting research and projects on dealing with either long- or short-term climate uncertainties using models.

Deltares' free and open-source software is used all over the world. During this seminar we will explore how Deltares software is used in South-East Asia for weather and flood forecasting, seasonal drought forecasting, climate resilient river basin and urban planning, etc.

Learn about the many ways Deltares Hydro Software is applied in South-East Asia. Get in touch with your colleagues and learn how our hydro software can also help you in your decision-making process.


This seminar will be organised as a hybrid session. If you cannot  attend in person but would like to follow the seminar online, please use this registration form to Microsoft Teams Webinar. If you attend in person, register using MyDeltares registration and add this event to cart.
