International grant for research on water transformations in urban fringes areas
TPM researcher Leon Hermans has been awarded funding for the international project “H2O -- T2S in Urban Fringe Areas”. It is one of twelve interdisciplinary research projects on ”Transformations to Sustainability” funded by the international Belmont Forum and NORFACE.
The project “H2O -- T2S in Urban Fringe Areas” looks at transformations around water management in urban fringe areas in India. This three year research project will investigate resilience and vulnerability enhancing mechanisms for local water security, and their implications for future transformative pathways. The dynamic and contested urban fringe areas offer a rich real-world testing ground for the innovative policy analysis methods developed around adaptive delta management at TPM.
