Abstract Important land use changes in the Netherlands that are expected for the coming years are: expansion of nature and forest areas, urban areas and areas for recreation at the expense of agricultural areas. These changes will have consequences for water management, such as wetter conditions for nature, changes in groundwater recharge, emission of fertilizers and pesticides, careful use of groundwater, and an integrated approach in areas with different functions. Research should therefore focus on: integration of models, hydrology, water quality, ecology, economy, reliability of models, optimization techniques, and development of practical tools and decision-support systems for strategic and operational water management.
