Enabling Dutch sector engagement in WACA
To further engage the Dutch water sector with the WACA program, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) is hosting an informative session on 24 September. During the session, the World Bank will present WACA needs and opportunities and we will discuss possible avenues for Dutch water sector contributions.
After signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Bank last June to support coastal resilience efforts in West Africa under the WACA program, NWP announced its plans to establish a Dutch WACA Hub to connect Dutch water expertise to the coastal challenges of West Africa. NWP has engaged with several key players from the Dutch water sector and seen many opportunities for contribution and collaboration within the WACA framework.
As a follow up, NWP will host an online WACA meets Dutch Water Sector session on 24 September. This session intends to connect the WACA program (and the World Bank) to the Dutch water sector.
During the session, both NWP and World Bank will be present to speak on the strategic partnership and the WACA program, as well answer any possible questions you may have.
