Challenges in coastal flood risk reduction - collaboration between the Netherlands and Japan NWO-JSPS Joint Seminar

On 12 December 2016 a seminar was organized in Tokyo, Japan, to exchange information between Dutch and Japanese researchers to improve the methods of reducing coastal risks. After the seminar, field visits were organized to flood protection structures in Tokyo (13 December) and coastal areas affected by the March 2011 tsunami (14–15 December). Some of the seminar’s participants, instead of the field visit, carried out a workshop “Challenges in flooding” (13–16 December).
