Water Policy for the People: David Zetland at TEDxWageningen

David Zetland is a senior water economist in the Department of Environmental Economics and Natural Resources at Wageningen University in the Netherlands where he is working on an EU-funded project, “Evaluating Economic Policy Instruments for Sustainable Water Management in Europe.” He blogs on water, economics and politics at aguanomics.com and is the author of The End of Abundance: economic solutions to water scarcity (2011). He is passionate about making it easier for people to accomplish their goals, improving the ways we interact with each other, and enjoying the beauty of the natural and human worlds.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
