As many other countries in North Africa and Sahel region, Morocco is facing an uncertain and difficult future when it comes to water. The demand for water is growing, whilst water supply is dwindling. A delegation of Moroccan urban planners will visit the Netherlands at the end of this month to learn about the Dutch expertise, practice and research on urban rainwater collection and valorisation.
The delegation consists of 15 experts representing among other entities including Moroccan ministries such as the Ministry of Equipment, Transport and Logistics and Water; the Ministry of National Land Planning, Urban Planning, Housing and Urban Policy; and the Ministry of the Interior; and the 'Caisse de dépot et de gestion'', a state-owned financial institution in Morocco. Furthermore, representatives from Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GiZ) and the Dutch Embassy in Morocco will join.
This visit also aims to raise awareness of the benefits and the role of stormwater management in urban development, and the related requirements and challenges.
The delegation is interested in working together with Dutch water sector organisations on the above-mentioned topics and their activities during the visit may lead to business opportunities. Therefore, NWP together with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) and the Dutch Embassy in Morocco will organise a networking lunch on Monday, 25 November at KuiperCompagnons in Rotterdam.
