NWP is addressing the water & conflict issue by promoting the Dutch water sector’s expertise and experience on water management, water diplomacy and multi-stakeholder processes nationally and internationally. It has prioritised the MENA region and within it Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon, for its work. These countries are especially prone to water crises, aridity, instability and climate change. NWP’s ultimate aim is to prevent water being a cause of conflict and migration by initiating and facilitating integrated, innovative and long term collaboration. To this end, it has identified four cornerstones that underpin its work.
NWP collaborates with the Water, Peace and Security Partnership for its activities concerning Water & Conflict.
The activities of NWP on the Water & Crisis theme are within the framework of the Partners for Water Programme.
