Project member

Congolese and Angolan Foundation Talentueux
(1 month)

Just as previous year I visited the DRC as a member of a group young people during summer. This time I participated in a rural project in Mbanza Ngungu. I worked with Congolese farmers and the farmer organization COOPADIS. Enjoyed learning about the farming systems and irrigation activities. Communication in French was a challenge and a good practice. I presented my perception of rural Congo at Dutch primary schools, high schools, and to elderly, donators, and fellow students to show how different life is and what difficulties others can experience.

(1 month)

During summer I experienced the Congolese urban society in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic Congo (DRC). Together with a mixed group of young Congolese and Dutch people I visited multiple facilities: an orphanage home, a child hospital, several elderly homes, and development projects of NGO's. Back home in the Netherlands I presented my Congo-experience at Dutch primary schools, high schools, and to elderly and donators to raise awareness amongst these people.


Reactive versus Anticipative Adaptive Management. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the Rhine-Meuse Delta compared.(Link)

Water Governance / Baltzer Science Publishers
January 2014

In this paper Californian Adaptive Management (AM) and Dutch
Adaptive Delta Management (ADM) are compared. The concepts are
introduced in a policy context to deal with prevailing types of uncertainty in
water management in the Californian Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and
the Dutch Rhine-Meuse Delta respectively. While having the same objective,
we show that adaptive management in these Deltas differs considerably,
because the concepts address different uncertainties. Californian AM is
primarily applied to ecosystem management while Dutch ADM is primarily
developed for flood risk management and fresh water supply purposes.
Californian AM is based on modeling the performance of different actions.
It emphasizes that, once management actions are selected, formal and
continuous learning is required to deal with uncertain effects and
effectiveness of management actions. Thus it reacts on present states in a
continuous fashion as adequately and flexible as possible. In contrary Dutch
ADM anticipates on possible futures through projections of climate change
and socio-economic circumstances. Different sets of measures to avoid or
postpone projected problems are developed. In ADM uncertainty in
projections is recognized, and possible rejection of projections over time is
acknowledged. For climatic and socio-economic circumstances ADM aims
to ensure that alternative adaptation pathways can still be opted. We argue
that good Delta management should be based on long term projections, as
in Dutch ADM, and scientific learning from implemented actions, as in
Californian AM. A hybrid of both concepts can thus be created in order to
strengthen adaptive management practice in the face of future uncertainty.
