Related SDGs:

The Sustainable Delta game helps to learn about preparing for an uncertain future. The main goal of the game is to develop a sustainable water management plan for a river delta. When the future unfolds, the participants experience what happens in the delta and its environment.

With this simulation-based game, participants get direct feedback on their policy actions. In addition to negative impacts of floods and droughts, support of inhabitants, economic growth, and impacts on nature need to be taken into account in decision making about the water management plan.
