Martijn de Klerk

Financieel Manager/Flying Sensor Expert


M. (Martijn) de Klerk (MSc.) is financial manager and flying sensor expert at FutureWater with over four years of working experience in managing and executing international projects in the fields of water management, irrigation and agriculture. He received his master degree in Environmental Sciences at Wageningen University, where he gained broad experience in planning and organizing projects, and worked both as a consultant and scientific researcher. Countries of work experience include Spain, Mozambique, Kenya, Ghana and the Netherlands. Technical activities embrace drone and satellite image processing and interpretation, GIS analysis, and water allocation modelling, both at the level of a single field and an entire river basin.

Over the past years Martijn had a predominant role as project manager of FutureWater’s ThirdEye projects in Mozambique, Kenya and Ghana. In these projects, successful local enterprises were established that provide a low-cost drone service to small- and largescale farmers. The high-resolution drone images, which are made by trained local operators, indicate crop stress, around ten days before it can be detected by the naked eye. This early-warming decision tool gives farmers the possibility to take preventive measures, reducing crop loss and thus increasing yields and farmer’s income.
