Exercise session is the most useful to me because through this stage i can understand easily what
i learned from lecture.

This training is a practical training focusing on the application of Information Services for Sustainable Delta Management. Workshop participants acquired insights into the Knowledge Portal, the Touch Table and the use of information services for scenario planning.

Background information was supplemented by demonstrations, hands-on exercises and group discussions. A focus of the course is to gain practical experiences in the application of information services and to enable participants to use these services in their specific field of application. Use cases of how information services support sustainable delta management in Bangladesh were presented and discussed.

The use of the Knowledge Portal and the Touch Table proved to be particularly useful to support planners and decision makers in problem analysis, strategy-making or monitoring steps. Questions on how to prepare, realize and maintain the use of the Knowledge Portal and the Touch Table were addressed.
