Improving preparedness for drought events

Droughts are among the most impactful natural hazards to both nature and humanity. Globally,  about 1.5 billion people have been directly affected by drought in this century and the associated costs are estimated to be over $100 billion.


Dealing with land subsidence

Many deltas and coastal areas in the world not only need to deal with rising sea levels but also with land subsidence. The societal costs of subsidence are huge.


Working towards resilient infrastructure networks

Service delivery by current infrastructure is under stress of intensifying use and change of use. In addition, parts of the infrastructure is due for renovation or replacement and new infrastructure is constructed.


Actionable disaster warnings

Even with protection measures in place, water- and weather-related disasters may still inflict significant damage and casualties. As 10% of the world’s population lives in low-lying, flood-prone areas, this concerns hundreds of millions of people globally.


Utilising water and subsurface resources in the heat transition

For the built environment, the Dutch government, industry and knowledge institutes have identified renewable energy sources for collective heating and cooling systems. In these systems water and subsurface play an important role as a sustainable source of energy.
