Learning From the Netherlands

Lunchtime Forum

With sea level rise threatening our coastal areas, there is much that can be learned from countries that have faced this problem for years. A Bay Area delegation visited the Netherlands recently to study how the Dutch manage their water and plan for economic resiliency. Join us for a visual exploration of the Dutch strategies — and the lessons brought back to the Bay Area.
