    Temporal changes in sensitive rheophilic fish communities: the effects of 30 years of floodplain management in the lower river Rhine, the Netherlands
    Stoffers, Twan ; Collas, Frank ; Geerling, G.W. ; Buijse, A.D. ; Jans, Luc G. ; Nagelkerke, Leo - \ 2019
    The extensive modifications in the river Rhine resulted in the severe decline, or even loss, of diadromous fish species typical for European lowland river systems, such as Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and European sturgeon (Acipenser sturio). In addition, the numbers of potamodromous, rheophilic species, such as European barbel (Barbus barbus), nase (Chondrostoma nasus) and dace (Leuciscus leuciscus) have significantly reduced. Since the 1990s, authorities in the Netherlands have reconstructed numerous floodplains to improve the ecological quality of the river systems. This resulted in positive changes to water quality and an increase in natural habitats, but not to the expected recovery of rheophilic fish species. We expect that the slow recovery of rheophilic fish populations is mainly caused by insufficient presence, accessibility, and/or quality of floodplain habitats that function as nursery areas for young fish. To study the effects of the reconstructed floodplain habitats on the population developments of rheophilic fish, and to assess why these developments are not as positive as expected, we compared species composition and abundance of juvenile fish from 1997, 2009, and 2017, for 4 floodplain systems in the Dutch part of the river Rhine. Temporal changes in the juvenile fish community were related to temporal changes in floodplain morphology (connectivity, size-length ratio, total bank length), habitat variability (vegetation cover, substrate, structural complexity), and river discharge and water flow dynamics. In general the same fish species were found during all periods, with the exception of alien gobies that were first recorded in the 2009 surveys. Rheophilic fish densities, however, all show a distinct decrease in all studied floodplain systems. We hypothesize that this decrease is related to deterioration of the nursery function of the habitats with time, probably related to silting of the systems after their construction. Silting leads to reduced water dynamics, less flow, and even detachment of the floodplain from the main channel, which makes these habitats less suitable for rheophilic fishes and may lead to an increase in eurytopic species, especially when there is also increased vegetation growth. As silting is a natural process and will almost always occur, this means that in order to maintain suitable nursery areas for rheophilic fishes, regular maintenance of these floodplain systems needs to be performed.
    De landbouw en het landelijk gebied in Nederland in beeld : Een houtskoolschets van de SWOT voor het GLB

    Voor de periode 2021-2027 moeten lidstaten in een Nationaal Strategisch Plan (NSP) uiteenzetten hoe zij met hun beleidsinzet gaan bijdragen aan door de Europese Commissie geformuleerde doelstellingen voor het Gemeenschappelijk Landbouwbeleid. Deze beleidsinzet is mede gebaseerd op een zogenaamde SWOT-analyse (Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats). Met oog op het voorbereiden van het NSP, heeft het ministerie van LNV ervoor gekozen om een SWOT-analyse te maken in twee fasen. In de eerste fase wordt een SWOT-analyse op hoofdlijnen ('Houtskool-SWOT') opgesteld. In een tweede fase komt de definitieve SWOT-analyse tot stand. Dit rapport bevat de Houtskool-SWOT.
    Public-private partnerships as systemic agricultural innovation policy instruments : Assessing their contribution to innovation system function dynamics
    Hermans, F.L.P. ; Geerling-Eiff, F.A. ; Potters, J.I. ; Klerkx, L.W.A. - \ 2019

    This paper addresses the question how public-private partnerships function as systemic innovation policy instruments within agricultural innovation systems. Public-private partnerships are a popular government tool to promote innovations. However, the wide ranging nature of PPPs make it difficult to assess their effects beyond the direct impacts they generate for the partners. This paper broadens the discussion on the evaluation of PPPs beyond the organisational and financial benefits of the actors involved, and assesses their contribution to the functioning of the innovation system itself. In this paper, we utilise an innovation system perspective that focusses on how PPPs influence the dynamic interplay of innovation system functions and how these functions form a set of feedback loops that constitute an ‘innovation motor’. We compare the innovation history of four cases that differ in their strategic policy goals, either working on agricultural sustainability, or on the international competitiveness in the Dutch agricultural sector. The results show the strengths and weaknesses of different types of public-private partnerships as systemic instruments and their capability to orchestrate other types of innovation policy instruments

    Triple helix networks matching knowledge demand and supply in seven Dutch horticulture Greenport regions
    Geerling-Eiff, Florentien A. ; Hoes, Anne-Charlotte ; Dijkshoorn-Dekker, Marijke - \ 2017
    Studies in Agricultural Economics 119 (2017)1. - ISSN 1418-2106 - p. 34 - 40.
    This paper investigates the triple helix (industry, knowledge workers and governments) cooperation on knowledge co-production and valorisation for innovation, which took place in seven horticultural regions in the Netherlands. It thus provides more empirical insight into the functioning of this form of cooperation. Based on a secondary multiple case study analysis, this paper sets out to ascertain what enabled triple helix cooperation in the seven regions with respect to the organisation, the formulation and support for goals and action on knowledge co-production and valorisation. The results indicate that in order to stimulate innovation through triple helix cooperation, the different partners fi rst need to build a proper working relationship and a common language. In order to accomplish this, primary aims for innovation should not be formulated too ambitiously (i.e. too far beyond the entrepreneurs’ daily practice, in particular SMEs). Knowledge workers and policy makers often want to stimulate knowledge co-production and valorisation more radically and quickly. Hence, they have to temper their ambitions. Procedures regarding the cooperation should be rather simple and fl exible. Once a steady working relationship and a common language are developed, then the triple helix collaboration can focus on taking the innovation ambition to a higher level in order to realise more valuable change. At first, entrepreneurs have to experience how they can profit from the cooperation and learn to incorporate knowledge co-production and valorisation step-by-step in their business strategy, including fi nancial investments.

    Agrarische ondernemers over de mestwetgeving : beleving van het mestbeleid: draagvlak, knelpunten en oplossingen

    Akkerbouwers, melkveehouders en varkenshouders vinden het goed dat er een mestbeleid is en hebben de intentie om hier nauwkeurig aan te blijven voldoen, ook als het verder wordt aangescherpt. Het draagvlak voor het huidige mestbeleid, ofwel de mate waarin ondernemers achter het beleid staan, is echter gering bij agrarische ondernemers en andere belanghebbenden. Dit is een belangrijke conclusie uit het onderzoek naar de beleving van het mestbeleid door agrarische ondernemers en andere belanghebbenden dat is uitgevoerd in het kader van de evaluatie van de mestwetgeving in 2016.

    This report focuses on developing concepts and design principles for blue and green infrastructure that not only support climate resilience but also contribute to a healthy and liveable urban environment. We will first assess the effectiveness of blue and green infrastructure on the basis of available literature and experience from the city of Utrecht. Secondly, we will formulate principles for the design of blue and green infrastructure in the urban landscape.
