Adriaan V.

Doctoral DegreeWageningen University



I am a qualified, all-round hydraulic engineer with international land and water management as a specialisation. I have a broad experience in different types of work in diverse socio-economic, institutional and physical environments. I have full experience in the context dependent comparison, design and implementation of all irrigation methods (gravity, sprinkler, drip, micro-irrigation methods) both on small and large scale. In Mozambique I worked during 10 years in four provinces as irrigation engineer and project manager. Through my work I am familiar with the formulation, appraisal, planning, technical design, management, implementation and evaluation of water resources, irrigation and rural development projects. I feel comfortable in an integrated technical, environmental and socio-economic approach to rural and irrigation development. In particular, I have knowledge and experience in the identification, diagnosis, (re)design and strengthening of Farmer Managed Irrigation Systems
