The Strategic Advisors on Water are knowledgeable about the local context and have local networks. They are guided by sustainable development principles and act as a go between what is needed in partner countries and the Netherlands embassies, and between the Netherlands embassies and the Dutch water sector. They share information on the policy instruments in the partner countries and on the financial instruments available from the Netherlands. The Strategic Advisors on Water are supported by NWP Project Officers.
