Covid-19 boosts momentum for water resilience

Against the backdrop of the Covid-19 crisis and recovery, it is even more critical to join forces to build an inclusive and resilient future. The challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic give an extra impetus to WWWeek at Home, the alternative event to Stockholm World Water Week that will be hosted from 24 to 28 August. The Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) will be part of the event’s programme with various sessions including one on nature-based solutions. Bianca Nijhof, NWP Managing Director, discusses the importance of connecting water resilience to global challenges such as Covid-19 and climate change more actively. Further, she introduces #WaterTalks, a new initiative featuring the critical views of thought leaders in the Dutch water sector.
