Serious gaming is an essential tool for strategic planning, training for crisis situations and education. Deltares has developed serious games for various aspects of life in delta regions. The games typically combine knowledge about environment and infrastructure, game rules that reflect the span of control of the stakeholders and a realistic visualisation of the area. Our serious games are played by policy makers, students, water managers, levee patrollers and the general public.
Deltares develops serious games with a range of aims: for the preparation of strategic decisions, to support operational activities or to raise awareness of sustainable options.
