"My name is Johan Heymans, I will start in January as Delegated Representative of the Netherlands for Water Cooperation in Yangon. After graduating in Land and Water Management at the Agricultural University in Wageningen I have worked over 30 years in integrated water resources management worldwide. I started as associate expert for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) in Zambia, Indonesia and Bangladesh. Thereafter I joined DHV and continued to work in international projects in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, China, Trinidad &Tobago and Mauritius, mainly on irrigation development and river basin planning. Within DHV I switched in 2002 to the Dutch water sector and started working on climate change adaption, the Water Framework Directive and the Delta Programme. In the past 5 years I combined working as a freelance consultant in the Netherlands, China and Kyrgyzstan with lecturing Water Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam.
