How do you know NWP and why did you accept the NWP Board Membership?
“I have known NWP for a long time as AidEnvironment is an NWP member and is actively involved in the NWP NGO Platform. The Platform allows members to share knowledge of the water sector, explore forms of cooperation, and, with different actors, influence the water agenda. It is very relevant for AidEnvironment, especially in making the connection between actors in a sometimes fragmented landscape.
There is an increasing sense of urgency from the wider society and from the private sector to take action on Sustainable Development Goal 13 (climate action) and to make connections to SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation) and 5 (gender equality). Collaboration within the Dutch water sector, and specifically the NGO Platform, can play a substantial and connecting role here.”
