In the aftermath of the Hurricane Katrina that laid waste to large parts of New Orleans, a number of large infrastructure and research projects have been initiated to improve flood prevention in the region. With a similar flood prone, urbanized delta area the Dutch have considerable experience with water management that has proven invaluable to formulating a solution and future response to these projects. Dutch Dialogues provides a condensed narrative of the fruits of a workshop dealing with this common theme and provides a collection of insightful papers, planning solutions, water strategies and other sketches and models that deal with this subject.
