Abstract:Water management problems are often complex and unstructured, because knowledge is uncertain and stakeholders’ perceptions diverge. Dealing with these problems requires that stakeholders first reach an agreement about a valid problem-solution formulation. The initiation of an interactive or participatory process may contribute to this process of problem structuring. To get insight in problem structuring, we investigated a case study in the Dutch Delta. The case study shows that strategic and cognitive learning and two different types of knowledge – scientific and stakeholder knowledge – contribute to the development of an agreement about a valid formulation of a problem and its solution.
