People need capacity to manage data, to innovate, to govern well and to manage funds effectively. IHE Delft has solid experience in delivering tailored and demand-driven capacity development interventions. A lack of proper infrastructure or a lack of capable water professionals are not the only challenges to effective water management. The main culprit is often a lack of strong institutions and good governance, which, combined with too little interaction among institutions accountable for water management, leads to a weak water sector.
IHE Delft pursues cutting-edge research that fulfills global water-related needs and targets pragmatic, evidence-based solutions, thereby contributing to a more sustainable world. The Institute comprises about 140 academic staff members, over 100 PhD researchers and some 150 master students.
