Peter Prins commissioned as Knowledge Broker on Salinisation

Provinces and water authorities invest in a campaign to raise awareness and provide technical assistance for farmers. Dedicated knowledge brokers bridge the gap between researchers and farmers.

Land Water Food Consult is recently appointed to support the local governments in the North of the Netherlands of disseminate knowledge on salinisation of agricultural soils and water sources. This assignment fits very well in our international portfolio. In several other projects in Colombia, Vietnam and Egypt is an issue. Exchange of experiences will be very fruitful to tackle the impact of salinity and to identify feasible solutions. 

In this project a team of Knowledge Brokers covering the whole coastal zone of the Netherlands (provinces Zeeland, Noord-Holland, Friesland and Groningen) will work together. This setting will encourage exchange of experiences on salt tolerant crops, water management and aquaculture.

Composing solutions

Solving complex issues surrounding food production is like composing music. Working as a team of experts can make for a resounding success. This requires skill, a good plan and a clear goal. And natural affinity with farmers and other parties active in rural areas.

There are many factors that determine whether the crop in an agricultural area is successful. The dependence on the whims of the weather, the market and politics make food systems vulnerable. Climate change reinforces this effect. In this complex forum farmers are trying to find a way. Governments set the policy context, promote research and stimulate growth. That is easier said than done. Many plans are little more than pipe dreams. Land Water Food makes climate adaptation concrete and feasible. Soil, water and food systems are connected to an integrated and sustainable approach. Working on operational goals, an action perspective for farmers and other stakeholders. Land Water Food bridges the gap between policy and the agricultural reality. It brings together experts to work with you on an approach with impact! So, why not you?
