Purpose & background

The full session will discuss three major American projects challenged by a non-stationary climate, and how the United States is responding vis-à-vis risk and resilience.

The three US projects that will be discussed are:

  • The comprehensive Everglades restoration plan
  • Flood mitigation of the lower Mississippi River
  • Western USA mega-drought

The Bangladesh Delta plan 2100 will also be covered. The Government of Bangladesh approved this plan on September 4, 2018, to secure the future of water resources and mitigate the likely effects of climate change and natural disasters.
