This research assesses the impact of plastic waste accumulation on flood events with citizen observations in Kumasi, Ghana. In Kumasi, the fastest growing city in Ghana, flooding events have become more intense due to rapid urbanisation and land use intensification. Additionally, rapid population growth, urbanisation and lack of organised waste...

Urban agriculture lies at the core of the Water Energy Food nexus and seems to provide a partial answer to confront modern trends such as population growth, climate change and resource depletion by increasing food security in cities and enhancing sustainability in an urban realm. The assembly of a WEF nexus framework taught, however, that most...

Calibration of groundwater models can be done manually by comparing the measured and computed groundwater heads or automatically using algorithms which do the work for you. Modules for this purpose are included in or linked externally to traditional groundwater modelling software and used. One such module PEST (Parameter ESTimation) uses the...

Quantifying the anthropogenic impacts such as reservoir characterization is a big challenge in the field of water management. In this work, a computer graphics based geometric approach is presented which can predict the underlying topology of large-scale reservoirs. The proposed algorithm uses freely available, satellite based landscape data of...

The northern Ghana climatological conditions are favourable for agricultural production. The annual average precipitation of 800-1250 mm/y is theoretically sufficient for farmers to be year-round self-sufficient. However, the majority of precipitation falls in a 4-month wet season spanning from late May to October. As a consequence, the region...

In Manica Province in Central Mozambique, agricultural activities consist for a significant part of farmer-led irrigated agriculture. These farmers construct and maintain their own irrigation systems with local inputs and have a commercial intent. Organization is often individual and farmers receive zero to minimal external support from donors,...

In deep polders in the Netherlands the dominant mechanism of salinization is via intense seepage through boils. These are local connections between the surface water and a deep saline aquifer. The study area of this research is the Lissertocht. This catchment, which is located inside the Haarlemmermeerpolder, contains a lot of boils that can...

In 2014, a project, Living Lab Land Subsidence, is established to find a sustainable solution for land subsidence problem in Gouda. Being a part of the project, this research focuses on building a high-resolution groundwater model (2m*2m) by describing the model (such as recharge, leaky sewerage pipes) in local details. Water management...

Population growth, meat-focused diets and emerging industries are increasing stress on water, energy and food (hereafter: WEF) supply around the globe. As stress on the resources rises, the interdependencies between the sectors become more apparent and often lead to unforeseen chain reactions. An example of which is: a drought leads to...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

Water level data is a key factor in water systems research. Frequently measuring water levels in areas with tidal influence is especially desirable because it enables observations to follow the rise and fall between minimum and maximum water level. However, a majority of developing countries are not able to measure water levels at the desired...

In recent years, urban inundation modelling has been stimulated by technological advancements and an increase in data availability and quality. Diminution of modelling restrictions allowed for detailed methodologies, yet escalated the number of required parameters, leading to higher complexity and predictions’ uncertainty issues. In the present...

The main objective for the research is the development of a comprehensive and easily accessible method assessing the price changes of wheat and cocoa by predicting change in wheat and cocoa production using season key point in the growing season of wheat and cocoa and open precipitation data from ground based weather stations only. The found...
