Strengthening Education and Training Capacities for Water Sector Professionals…
DeltaCap’s capacity development activities will be structured around 4 themes:
- Sustainable Delta Management: longer term planning and integrated assessment.
- Multi stakeholder and innovative collaboration.
- Participatory water management & local level information services.
- Participatory water management & national level information services.
Dedicated 9 thematic work packages have been formulated capturing objectives, activities, planning and budget.
The overall management of DeltaCap will be executed by the Project Management Board (PMB).
Inception phase (WP1)
Objectives 1. To achieve project objectives and results to quality and within budget and time constraints. 2. To promote and facilitate collaboration between partners. 3. Communication between Nuffic and the consortium. 4. Providing contractual reporting amongst which periodic reports and final reporting.
Developing sustainable Delta management centre (WP2)
The Sustainable Delta Management Centre (SDMC) will evolve as a closely-linked cluster of several physical/virtual hubs. These hubs will have their own facilities and capacities for capacity-building, and will address the relevant areas of capacity-building and training needs identified by the WPs. A coordinating hub, based at a well-established knowledge institution, will have functional linkages with other hubs (e.g. BUET, IWM, BWDB Training Centre, DUET, CUET), virtual hubs (training provider institutions with specific capacities), and mobile facilities (for local level dissemination and awareness). Other virtual hubs (e.g. business cases/training product delivery enterprises) can be developed during the project.
Sustainable Delta Management : Longer term planning and integrated assessment (WP3)
Main objectives of Work Package 3 are :
- Increase operational understanding of decision makers and planners about longer term planning and integrated assessment
- Improved practical decision making in view of socio-economic and environmental developments including climate change
- Improved understanding of BDP and SDG in relation to delta management
Sustainable delta management : Innovative collaboration / Multi-stakeholder involvement (WP4)
The main aim of WP4 is : To develop inter-project collaborations in which front-runners embracing SDM/ADM-principles engage with early stage partner-projects in order to build capacity for adoption and replication.
Participatory Water Management – information services local level (WP5)
Information Services for Sustainable Delta Management (WP6)
The work package 6 Information Services for Sustainable Delta Management aims at demonstrating the potential of information services and stimulating their use to support planning, decision making and the implementation process for Sustainable Delta Management.
Digital Support (WP7)

Communication and labour market investigation (WP9)
A main challenge faced by DeltaCap project is how to make significant impact from a small-scale project with limited budget. Communication strategy aims at up-scaling the impact of the project activities by strategically disseminating its activities and findings.
Labour market component is focusing on the future needs and attempt to understand the gaps in the labour market for delta planning and address these needs.
