    Urban water management is no longer an isolated discipline, but a contester for space in urban planning. New stakeholders with different objectives are requiring answers outside the scope of our models. This study aims to identity these answers to make water management relevant for other disciplines and easy communication. Stakeholder analysis, in the form of data screening of national literature and workshops, is used to systematically investigate planning objectives. Furthermore, indicators to quantify the achievement of these objectives are explored in national and global literature. Preliminary results show that planning objectives can be divided into four main categories; welfare, environmental protection, economic objectives and technical objectives. Even though planning objectives were derived in a national context, they cover objectives listed in similar studies performed in Switzerland and UK, suggesting relevance beyond national borders. The preliminary results even go beyond these studies by including more welfare objectives, e.g. mobility. Stakeholder preferences change over time, so their connection to planning objectives needs to be continuously modified in or models
