A delegation from the Philippines visited the Netherlands to learn about Dutch water expertise. Since 2015, the Philippines Government has sought the advice of several Dutch organisations on a holistic sustainable strategy and development plan for Manila Bay.
During the visit, representatives from local and central governments learned about Dutch solutions in regard to coastal defence, sustainable water management, solid waste management and innovative financing for public infrastructure. Various knowledge institutes, companies, government agencies and NGOs were involved and provided vital background information and depth to the visit. One example was a field trip to Scheveningen to learn about coastal defence.
