Always seek the connection: both contribute and benefit

The Dutch water sector could flourish internationally even more if it practices more reciprocity, that is, both contributing to sustainable solutions for vulnerable regions and benefiting from learning from abroad. This is certainly the case when it comes to addressing the increasing drought problems that the Netherlands is facing. This is the message from Katja Portegies, Director of Safety and Water at Rijkswaterstaat (part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) and board member of the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) since the end of 2019.
