CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES:
The research cluster Energy and Global Change: Dealing with Risks and Uncertainties that I established and lead within STS and the Copernicus Institute, aims at conceptual work on uncertainty in model based environmental risk assessment, along with the (further) development of methodologies that facilitate a better management of uncertainty, quality, plurality and value judgements in risk assessment, integrated environmental assessment, and sustainability assessment. We focus on those situations where scientific assessment is used as a basis for policy making on environmental risks, before conclusive scientific evidence and scientific consensus are available on the causal relationships, the magnitude and the probabilities of these risks. Policy decisions on such risks (e.g. climate change) cannot wait until the scientific understanding is complete, thus the knowledge base available for decision making is unavoidably incomplete, controversial and uncertain and in this setting unquantifiable uncertainties are often more important than quantifiable ones. This poses high demands on the ways uncertainties and dissent are dealt with in scientific assessment and how these are communicated to policy makers and society. My program aims to develop new multidisciplinary and deliberative tools and strategies for coping explicitly with scientific uncertainty and scientific controversy in science for policy, that meet these high demands.

The programme objectives are:

  • Analysis of, and theory development on the processes of knowledge production and utilization in the science policy society interface regarding sustainable development and risks;
  • Developing, demonstrating, and applying methods, instruments and strategies for uncertainty management, quality control, and extended peer involvement. A starting point here is the NUSAP-system for multi-dimensional uncertainty assessment, taking into account the technical, methodological, epistemological and societal dimensions of uncertainty;
  • Development of improved integrated strategies for effective communication of risks and uncertainties

My research program is part of the Energy for Sustainable Development program of the Copernicus Institute: theme "Energy and global change: dealing with risks and uncertainties " which I coordinate and (co-)lead, together with prof.dr. Bert de Vries. Two areas are addressed under this theme:

  1. Formal and participatory models and methods for integrated assessment of sustainability and or innovation issues (led by Prof.dr. Bert de Vries);
  2. Tools for multidimensional uncertainty assessment, risk assessment, and strategies for risk and uncertainty management and communication (led by me).

Major achievements of my program in the past 5 years have been:

(i) Development, demonstration and testing of the NUSAP method for multidimensional uncertainty assessment to a variety of cases including RIVM's IMAGE/TIMER Energy model. In 2005, an overview article of our experiences with the NUSAP method in various cases and projects was published in Risk Analysis. Together with TNO-MEP we have conducted a comprehensive NUSAP-based uncertainty assessment of NOx, SO2 and NH3 emissions in the Netherlands, using our NUSAP methodology.

 

The RIVM/MNP Uncertainty Guidance: a checklist approach
(ii) Development under my leadership of a state of the art Guidance for uncertainty assessment and communication for the RIVM-MNP. The guidance we developed used inputs from about twenty international top scientists in the field and we also organised, jointly with RIVM, a peer review of the guidance materials. Since the end of 2003 the guidance is a standard in the RIVM/MNP. It has attracted worldwide attention from inter alia the US Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA), the European Environmental Agency (EEA) and the Inter Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). With these and other groups we are exploring the opportunities to start joint projects and collaborations in this field. This has already lead to a collaboration with the US-EPA, and ad-hoc collaborations with the UK Flood Risk Management Research Consortium and the EU HarmoniCa project on the EU Water Framework Directive, who both involved us in their own projects to develop Uncertainty Analysis Guidance Documents (example).
At present we do a project for MNP on Uncertainty Communication, using the Utrecht Policy Laboratory.

(iii) Development demonstration and testing of a checklist for model quality assistance (together with dr. James Risbey and others). The work is published in the journal Environmental Modeling & Assessment. A web-based interactive version of the checklist has been implemented and is available on the www.nusap.net;

(iv) The Ph.D. work by Penny Kloprogge, aiming at the analysis and development of strategies to (better) manage value-ladenness in Integrated Assessment Modelling of climate change. Kloprogge made an analysis of the various ways in which stakeholder knowledge and perspectives have been included in integrated assessment modeling practice. She participated in the IIASA Young Scientist Summer Programme 2001, during which she studied the roles of value ladenness and (subjective) choice in the process of building assessment models, based on a large number of in-depth interviews with modelers at IIASA. Building further on these insights she developed in close collaboration with the RIVM an innovative method for the systematic review and critical appraisal of assumptions in model based foresight studies. The method has been demonstrated and tested on two environmental indicators from RIVM's 5th Environmental Outlook (EO5) and is now included in the tool catalogue of the RIVM/MNP Guidance on Uncertainty Assessment and Communication. One article is accpeted for publication in Climatic Change, three other journal articles are in preparation.

(v) The Ph.D. theses of Dr. Heleen Groenenberg (2002), Convergence and Development, a bottom-up analysis for the differentiation of future commitments under the Climate Convention. Three peer reviewed journal articles were published;

(vi) The joint writing and publishing with an international group of uncertainty experts of a state of the art conceptual paper "Defining Uncertainty: A conceptual Basis for Uncertainty Management in Model Based Decision Support" (Walker et al., 2003) in the journal Integrated Assessment. The paper presents a typology for uncertainty in the form of a matrix that distinguishes between location (context, model, inputs, parameters or model outcomes) and level (statistical uncertainty, scenario uncertainty, recognized ignorance) and nature (epistemic versus variability uncertainty).

(vii) The publication of the book Learning to Manage Global Environmental Risks, a functional analysis of social responses to climate change, ozone depletion, and acid rain, a two volume 600 page peer reviewed book. I co-authored 3 of the 22 chapters of the book. The book the book is co-edited by a then member of our group (Prof. Dr. Josee van Eijndhoven) and presents the findings of a major 4 year international research program.

(viii) regular invited key-note presentations on international conferences
