Sustainable Delta Game by Deltares


Sustainable Delta is a serious game that informs and enables communities, stakeholders, elected officials and the general public to better understand water systems and their related restoration and protection measures. It teaches players the importance of negotiation in decision making as well as how to make smarter investment decisions given an uncertain future.



The game challenges the two teams to define sustainable strategies that mitigate specific flood and drought risks, whilst also paying attention to broader development impacts, nature impacts, global and regional events, and the evolving perspectives of local inhabitants. The developed strategies need to be robust and balanced across a variety of performance indicators, and simulate long-term, adaptive management plans. After formulating their own strategies, the two teams must negotiate to determine a single, agreed strategy for implementation.
