Working with an international team of scientists, Johan identified and quantified a set of nine planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come – while crossing them could generate abrupt or irreversible environmental changes.
He is a leading scientist on global water resources and strategies to build resilience in water scarce regions of the world, with more than 15 years’ experience from applied water research in tropical regions, and more than 100 research publications in fields ranging from applied land and water management to global sustainability.
