My ambition is to help delta cities to solve the next century challenges everywhere land meets water.
Urbanised deltas are among the most challenging regions in the world under pressure of climate change, rapid urbanisation and economic development. Solving these complex problems requires integrated solutions that cut across silos and maximizes synergies between different sectors, and that creates new opportunities for ecology and improved quality of life for all.
This requires a design driven and collaborative approach in which science, industry, governments and local stakeholders engage to co-create, design, test and scale-up adaptation solutions under live conditions.
My services include programme development and management, strategic planning and research. I help to translate initial project ideas into concrete plans and implementation programs by transforming academic insights into practical use. I do this by bringing together expertise, organizing collaboration in living labs and exploring solutions and new opportunities.
