Dr. Haasnoot is an environmental scientist specialized in water management, integrated assessment modeling and decision making under deep uncertainty. She is a founder of the Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways approach. Her current research focuses on (adaptive) delta management and planning, and climate change adaptation. Model based adaptation pathways, fast integrated models and signals for timely adaptation are key tools in this research. Current studies focus on San Francisco, Miami, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, and Vietnam. Serious gaming is one of tools she uses to socialize people with decision making under uncertainty and adaptation pathways. Marjolijn is leading the research program on adaptation to climate change and sea level rise, is a member of the leadership team of the Society for Decision Making under Deep Uncertainty, and will be a lead author for the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC. Marjolijn is Associate Professor at University Utrecht.
Specialties: water management, environmental modelling, decision making under uncertainty, climate adaptation pathways, adaptation to sea level rise, deltas and coastal cities.
