OmiDelta programme

The Netherlands is one of Benin's most important donors in the field of water and sanitation. One programme in which the Water Support Programme is involved, is the ambitious OmiDelta programme that started at the end of 2016. The OmiDelta programme’s goals are to: provide access to clean drinking water for 500,000 people by 2021; access one million people with hygiene promotion and sanitation services; and, create a safer environment for 600,000 people in the Ouémé delta. This programme provides a platform for the Dutch water sector to share its knowledge and expertise on integrated water management, planning, operation and maintenance of water infrastructure.
