  • present the rationale of improving delta resilience for meeting national SDGs, climate and other socioeconomic development commitments.
  • examine the importance of a well designed rights-based approach and gender consideration in delta resilience building.
  • build awareness and identify a set of common policy, technical and financial challenges to all deltas and best practice responses.
  • identify country readiness to collaborate on WWF’s Resilient Asian Deltas’ (RAD) Initiative and forge partnerships.
