All three models in the study of Boogerd and others[107] proved to be valid to a certain degree. They concluded that more attention should be paid to the translation of policy problems from higher levels of political authority to the conceptualization at lower management levels to overcome the science-policy gap. 3 Bridging the Gap To bridge the water information gap, there is a call for less quantity of data and more targeted, interdisciplinary, tailor-made information[91, 113-117] (that is information that is effective—the information product is tailored to 26 Information Needs for Water Management the questions—and efficient—the information is provided at a reasonable and affordable price[118]).

The decision on what the problem is, therewith reducing the substantive uncertainty, is consequently part of the process. 21 Dealing with unstructured problem situations What is needed in an unstructured problem situation is a process of reflection, action, and political strife towards systematically structuring of the problem[168, 169]. Hisschemöller and Hoppe define four conditions to problem structuring (or problem finding). The primary condition for problem structuring to be set in motion is that at least some segments of the official policy elite start interacting with those who have alternative views on the problem.

The typology is particularly relevant as the methodology for specification of information needs will concentrate on developing certainty about the relevant knowledge. Hisschemöller and others conclude that the role of scientists in the four problem situations differs where each role requires different types of information[168]: Introduction—Setting the Scene 33 1. In a structured problem situation there is consensus about the knowledge needed and the values at stake. Scientists can play the role of problem solver in this situation, by providing the necessary knowledge.
