Dialogue and revolution: fostering legitimate stakeholder agency in natural resource governance [PhD thesis]
Larsen, R.K. \ 2011
natural resources - resource management - stakeholders - participation - governance

This thesis explores how people exert their agency in policy processes that pertain to natural resource governance, and how they construct the required sense of legitimacy for such actions. It also examines the manner in which facilitated multi-stakeholder processes foster legitimate stakeholder agency, and reflects on how they may ensure the rigour of research interventions in situations characterised by intractable uncertainty and controversy

De Bodemkaart van Nederland, schaal 1:50.000, is de belangrijkste bron van bodeminformatie in Nederland. Deze kaart raakt echter in gebieden met veengronden verouderd. Door intensief gebruik van deze gronden verdwijnt het veen. Actualisatie van de bodemkaart is daarom noodzakelijk. Bas Kempen promoveerde op zijn onderzoek hiernaar.

Penders, E.J.M. \ 2011
biomonitoring - surface water - drinking water - water quality - genotoxicity - river rhine - water pollution - bioassays - water supply

Given the need for continued quality control of surface waters used for the production of drinking water by state-of-the-art bioassays and biological early warning systems, the objective of the present thesis was to validate and improve some of the bioassays and biological early warning systems used for quality control of surface water. Although there is a decline in the (geno)toxicity of surface waters over the years as observed for example for the water from the River Rhine over last decades, there is still a need for continued quality control. Due to the lower (geno)toxicity, bioassays with increased sensitivity are needed
