Bespoke webinars unite Dutch and Latin American water experts


International water events have been cancelled since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This was also the case in Latin America, even though water challenges in this region are more urgent than ever. From July to September 2020, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and a consortium of seven Dutch embassies in Latin America jointly hosted the ‘Tackling water challenges in Latin America together’ webinar series to dive into the most pressing water issues in Latin America and connect Dutch and Latin American experts. And the initiative worked perfectly: an average of 300 visitors joined each session and more than 1,400 stakeholders in 19 countries in the Americas registered. In this article, Noortje Pellens and Arjan Braamskamp from the NWP LATAM regional team review the development of this tailor-made water initiative and outline further ideas to continue catalysing water impact in this region.
