Key Qualifications
Margje Soet has some 10 years experience in agro-hydrology, soil physics and climate change,
focusing on the impact of land surface-atmosphere interactions on forecasting large scale, long term
hydrological and atmospheric processes. After obtaining her M Sc in 1991, she became a research associate at
Wageningen Agricultural University. She was active in a series of international multi-disciplinary projects,
conducting extensive research in Niger, Spain and Slovakia from 1992 to 1995. After a year in Poland, working on
water purification, she moved on to Alterra research institute, Wageningen in 1997. There she developed and
implemented conceptual improvements for the hydrological component of regional scale climate models.
In 2002, Margje and her family moved to Beijing, PR China. There she has been involved in various
cultural and charity programs. She is active for Future Water projects in China since 2007.
