Abstract This report addresses the role of Waterwise as tool for eco-hydrological assessments in stakeholder negotiations on spatial planning issues. The often complex situations under uncertainty ask for a clear role for the stakeholders and Waterwise offers them a structure for iterative finding of solutions in a negotiation process. At the same time the multiple perspectives of the stakeholders on water management can by synchronised through a transparent and analytical tool like Waterwise. The crosssectoral role of Waterwise in situational decision making can be considered as an important function in the transition towards adaptive river basin management. Waterwise has been applied in 5 cases with the objective to enter into an interactive setting with the stakeholders. The applications have been made for the Beerze & Reusel, the Langbroekerwetering, and in the NeWater case study areas Kromme Rhine, Elbe and Nile.
