How to manage water resources? Is it just a matter of matching supplies to demands? Should water and its quality be recognised for its wider role in life? How to prepare public decisions on water, which are widely supported yet affordable? Questions without easy answers as interests, ideas and stakeholders diverge.

Kees Blok works on such questions and combines insights in technical aspects – and in socio-economic and institutional contexts – with experience in communication and participation.
