In 2018 The Netherlands experienced the most severe drought since 1976. In response to this, the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management established the 'Beleidstafel Droogte'. An external scientific committee took part in the Beleidstafel Droogte. One of their key recommendations was to introduce other drought indicators since the...

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is scheduled to present their solution for a storm surge barrier on Galveston Island in 2021 to congress for approval. A solution for an engineered dune system on the Galveston Island West End has been proposed, but storm surge models have shown that protection from this engineered dune only goes...

Since coined in 2011, socio-hydrology studies have been dominated with mathematical models developed by mostly hydrologists, which often did not take social aspects into account so seriously. Some people argued that more attention into the social part of socio-hydrology should be given, because often the social aspects were too oversimplified....

The social dimension in water management and the interaction of stakeholders is a challenge when modeling hydrological systems. Case studies are essential to uncovering relations and unexpected results. In this research, a case study of the Guayllabamba basin in Ecuador is proposed. Mainly, the interactions, perspectives, and relations between...

Water use has increased with double the rate of population growth in the twentieth century. Combined with changing diets due to increased global economic wealth, almost 50 per cent more food needs to be produced to meet demand, implying that fresh water availability will face even greater stress. At the same time, climate change is predicted to...

Water scarcity is a growing issue across the globe (Rijsberman, 2006) and because agriculture is the main consumer of water, investing in irrigation efficiency seems like a good solution to this problem. However, local gains in efficiency can reduce runoff and hence, have an adverse effect on downstream water availability (o.a. Perry (2018, 1999...

Removing organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) can enable wastewater reuse to alleviate pressure on fresh water sources. This research aims on the prediction of OMP removal efficiencies by ozonation and biofiltration based on experimental data sets and/or modelling. Comparison of experimental data on average OMP removal of three different studies from...

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defines the mutual values of the international community. These values are captured in the goals as agreed upon by its Member States. Each of the goals has a set of defined targets whose progress can be measured through a change in the associated data indicator. This way, the pursuit of...
