Point of call

Adept at matchmaking, NWP is the first point of call for anyone seeking expertise on water management issues or contact with the Dutch water sector. Given its wide and growing network, NWP is also the first point of call for its members in the Netherlands who are seeking expertise and partnerships internationally.

Strong collaborative alliance

Too much, too little, in the wrong place, at the wrong time, contaminated, increasingly unpredictable deluges and droughts, water is one of the most pressing issues of our time. NWP believes that a strong collaborative alliance and the sharing of expertise can help solve global water issues.

Our history
