Resilient Miami Beach: A Dialogue with the Dutch
On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, the City of Miami Beach, the University of Miami, and the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands hosted a one-day seminar that was both free and open to the public. This extaordinary event brought together experts from Southeast Florida and the Netherlands to engage in multi-disciplinary discussions designed to explore if, where, and how Dutch approaches to water management, landscape architecture, flood protection, and urban design are relevant in making Miami Beach more resilient. This is just the beginning of the dialogue between the City of Miami Beach and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. By developing a relationship, the two governments seek to learn from one another about how to best prepare and plan for the future impacts of climate change and sea level rise.
