We help people, agencies, governments, and regions to improve their lives or environment and avoid losses. We contribute with others to maintain our world. I'm honored to be part of such a helping and contribution.

Amgad Omer
Advisor in rivers-reservoirs
From a young age, I have been fascinated by how people in drought areas deal with water - one of the reasons to study hydrology. At Deltares, I can use my knowledge to contribute to a healthy living environment. I work on solutions to water shortages and justified use of (ground) water by combining research and practice. By proactively seeking opportunities and working together with various Deltares experts and partners, you can set up great projects. Last year, for example, I worked with a group of colleagues on an Integral Groundwater Study for the Netherlands, in which we brought together as much existing knowledge as possible about groundwater quantity and quality and explained it to a wider audience. It was very cool to see how much knowledge of Deltares and partners there is in this area and what the added value of this is for water managers, policy makers and users of groundwater.
