The international water association calls for a paradigm shift to the next generation of water systems and the Flemish Blue Deal necessitates a transition towards a circular water use. Digital tools and better management of the data that are available are considered an essential element in informing decision making about infrastructure investments and new management approaches. In the systems analysis group, we translate our long-standing expertise in water and water technology to decision support tools for planning circular water use and rainwater management. The methods applied involve multicriteria decision support algorithms and network analysis. The models are developed in Python and R.
