My research project focuses on the formation and change of actor coalitions in strategic delta planning processes. The main goal of this research project is to develop an operational tool to analyze implementation feasibility. This tool will have a strong focus on actors, actor coalitions and (possibilities for) change within these coalitions. I have a background in international environmental governance and conducted a PhD research project at the Environmental Policy Group at the Wageningen University. My PhD thesis ‘Greening marine infrastructural projects: a governance approach’ was conducted within the Building with Nature program. This PhD research showed me once more how important it is to align actor involvement and actor coalitions for a project or policy to be successfully implemented. I am therefore extremely happy that I can contribute to developing an operational tool that will strengthen strategic delta planning processes and will thereby contribute to sustainable delta’s.
