Junior researcher


Douwe de Voogt is a junior researcher in IVM’s department of Environmental Policy Analysis. He is currently active in the EU project CAPFLO, a collaboration of five research institutes in Europe, focusing on participatory capacity building processes for flood mitigation at local level. His activities for this project include a meta-analysis of participatory mechanisms, designing a participatory tool, and organising an international workshop. 

Douwe’s MSc thesis addressed urban water governance in Santiago de Chile, specifically focusing on how climate change adaptation planning has emerged through institutional changes. The research included three weeks of fieldwork in Santiago de Chile, conducting interviews with local stakeholders and researchers. The research was under the auspices of the INNOVCITIES project, to which Douwe is still contributing.
