The objective

– is to strengthen the capacity of partners to perform regular maintenance and updates of the information services.

main objectives:

  • Supporting early stages of planning and decision making activities with information services
    • Understand user needs
    • Provide tools that can be used to support early planning and decision making tasks
  • Strengthening the capacity for the maintenance of information services and regular updating of the data; and ensuring the ‘legacy of BDP2100’
  • Facilitating learning of best practises by creating a project map

Activities, Output and Deliverables

The work package 6 Information Services for Sustainable Delta Management follows a two-step approach.

Step 1: Increasing the capacity in terms of the use of information services for Sustainable Delta Management

In the first step, we aim at addressing user needs of the following key target users.

  • BWDB
  • WARPO
  • LGED
  • Planning Commission, GED

We are going to address their needs by:

  • offering a training on information services with a focus on the Knowledge Portal and the Touch Table

 

Step 2: Upscaling

In the second step of the project – in the upscaling phase – we aim at extending the scope and also involve a broader community of actors that benefits from a better quality of information services. The second step is particularly important for achieving the objective “Strengthening the capacity for the maintenance of information services and regular updating of the data”.

We are going to address user needs by:

  • Developing an online training modules on information services
  • Providing a project map to showcase on-going activities and projects on Sustainable Delta Management
