sr advisor water management, participation and capacity building, Deltares

In the past 30+ years I have worked in capacity building and stakeholder engagement in different countries in most continents (unfortunately not yet in Antarctica....). The countries I have worked in most are: the Netherlands (no surprise), Indonesia and Kenya. In my work I like to contribute to people's ability to understand their environment (including other people) and make well-informed choices.
