//***//
//Arjen Hoekstra (1967) is Professor in Water Management at the 
University of Twente, the Netherlands. He holds an MSc degree, cum 
laude, in Civil Engineering and a PhD degree in Policy Analysis, both 
from Delft University of Technology. Hoekstra lived in Europe, Asia and 
Africa and has a broad international network. He has led a variety of 
interdisciplinary research projects and advised governments, civil 
society organizations, companies and multilateral institutions like 
UNESCO and the World Bank.//
//
//Hoekstra was the first to quantify the water volumes virtually 
embedded in trade, thus showing the relevance of a global perspective on 
water use and scarcity. As creator of the water footprint concept, 
Hoekstra introduced supply-chain thinking in water management. With the 
development of Water Footprint Assessment he laid the foundation of a 
new interdisciplinary research field, addressing the relations between 
water management, consumption and trade. Hoekstra is founder of the 
Water Footprint Network, was the organization's first Science Director 
and is now Chair of its Supervisory Board.//
//
//Hoekstra's scientific publications cover a wide range of topics 
related to water management and include a large number of highly cited 
articles and book chapters. His books were translated into several 
languages and include The Water Footprint of Modern Consumer Society 
(Routledge, 2013), The Water Footprint Assessment Manual (Earthscan, 
2011), Globalization of Water (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008) and Perspectives 
on Water (International Books, 1998). Since April 2016, Hoekstra is 
Editor-in-Chief of Water, an international and interdisciplinary 
open-access journal covering all aspects of water, including water 
science, technology, management and governance.//
//
//Hoekstra has been teaching in a variety of subjects, including: water 
resources management, river basin management, hydrology and water 
quality, water footprint assessment, sustainable development, natural 
resources valuation, environmental systems analysis, and policy 
analysis. He developed various educational tools, including the River 
Basin Game and the Globalization of Water Role Play.//
