The Netherlands is a major player in the international water sector and always looks for ways to share its expertise and to learn from others.
The Netherlands Water Partnership works along cross-cutting themes that make it possible to look at different challenges from an integral approach.
Events and promotion
In a time of climate change it is necessary to join forces on urban resilience in order to increase knowledge and develop new insights. Based on demand driven requests the most urgent challenges and opportunities need to be defined.
Worldwide, water projects are disproportionally financed with public money, but future water challenges will never be met by the public sector alone. Certainly not in upcoming markets. How can we bridge the gap between water and finance?
Technology is fundamental in addressing issues such as the reuse of waste water and adding value to the water cycle to make it more sustainable. For NWP, innovation in water technology is all about the water cycle and the need to reduce, reuse and recover waste water.
As the world’s population increases, food security becomes a pressing issue. Climate change, drought, flooding, rising sea level, land subsidence and salination are exacerbating the situation. NWP mediates to bring the expertise of the Dutch agriculture, horticulture and aquaculture sector to areas where it can be used.
The world is facing a global water crisis brought on by decreasing freshwater resources resulting from poor water management, ecological degradation and climate change. NWP initiates activities on four cornerstones to help solve water crisis.
Rising sea levels and extreme weather events occur more frequently. They often result in floods that cause enormous damage. How we do we cope with flooding? NWP brings together Dutch and local organisations that want to collaborate on flood prevention in a specific region.
