In Dutch water systems many human interventions are carried out. These interventions are designed to achieve management goals, like increase protection against flooding, improve environmental quality and/or stimulate the national economy. Decision-makers involved in these kinds of plans have to deal with ecological effects, physical effects, economic costs and benefits and technical feasibility. Furthermore, they operate within a complex web of interactions between policy, regulations, and social and political processes. This PhD-project aims at assisting decision-makers in constructing assessments of the impact of future human interventions in water systems.
