River Delta Development is a degree offered by HZ University of Applied Sciences, HR University of Applied Sciences and Van Hall Larenstein with complementing expertise in the field of water.

River Delta Development is a unique master programme that focuses on the most challenging ecological topics within delta areas. Everywhere in the world, urbanisation and climate change are encroaching upon these fertile and ecologically valuable regions. The challenge is to decrease the vulnerability of river deltas, while simultaneously increasing the opportunities for healthy economic and ecological development. Versatile delta professionals are required, who not only have knowledge of river delta systems (coast, fluvial and urban), but also possess the necessary research and communication skills to make meaningful contributions to the environment.
