About the Author
Jeroen Rijke is a consultant at Triple Bridge and a researcher at UNESCO-IHE. His work focuses on assisting policy makers, planners and project managers with developing adaptive strategies and management approaches for sustainable infrastructure, mainly in the water sector. Jeroen is a civil engineer (TU Delft) who is trained in policy sciences (KTH, Monash University) and has worked across Europe, Australia and Africa.
His PhD focused on the governance of adaptation to flooding and drought (TU Delft and UNESCO-IHE). He has analysed governance responses to a decade of drought in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide to provide building blocks for enhancing innovative urban stormwater management practices and establishing transitions towards ‘water sensitive cities’. In addition, he evaluated multi-level governance processes within the €2.2 billion Room for the River programme in the Netherlands to develop recommendations for Rijkswaterstaat and the Delta Programme to improve existing programme management practices and establish adaptive delta management.
Prior to his PhD research, Jeroen mainly focused on climate adaptation in urban areas. He was lead author of a State of the Art report about climate adaptation in urban areas that played an instrumental role in the programming of the research on this topic of the Dutch national Knowledge for Climate research programme. Also, he was involved in a national assessment of the vulnerability and adaptive capacity of Dutch cities to climate change that was conducted for the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL).
