Many clients ask us to show them what effect a decision would have on a delta, river or coastal area. We carry out wide-ranging studies for them for now, in the near future and also in more than 30 years. We translate policy questions into solutions within a management and political context. Thereby we make extensive use of disciplines such as economics and spatial planning. We also take into account social factors and the environment.
Wide-ranging studies for the long term
Deltares is a specialist in thorough studies for the short and long term. For example: a local authority is deciding between freshwater storage in a natural area or heat and cold storage in a residential area. This raises questions from those involved. What are the opportunities and risks? Will the solutions still meet the demands of the population and the economic situation in a couple of decades? For example, what are the consequences for recreation and water quality? Our expertise contributes to well-grounded decision making by our clients.
Sustainable visions for ground and water
We study the surroundings and carry out research into external developments that are relevant to the goals and planning of a project. We highlight uncertainties and make risks predictable. Our future scenarios help managers and decision makers to develop a picture of the possible future of ground and water in the direct surroundings.
Linking specialists together for studies
Clients can count on well-grounded advice from a group of experienced scientists. Among them are economists, management experts and broadly-orientated scientists, but also specialists in the area of water, subsurface and the environment. We use a wide scale of tested techniques and research methods, such as trend and uncertainty analyses and the perspectives method, for our integrated studies. We join people and information together in order to come up with sustainable solutions.
