United Dutch water expertise
Wind, water and wide open spaces have shaped the Netherlands and its history. To be able to safely live in the low-lying delta that is the Netherlands, the Dutch have had to become skilled water managers. Our national track record speaks for itself. Over the years we have reclaimed land, increased our freshwater resources, made drinking water safe, and made it possible to re-use our wastewater.
We like to share our knowledge and skills internationally. We believe that by putting our heads together, we can achieve more in confronting global water-related challenges.
This website informs you on a daily basis on the international activities of the Dutch water sector. For centuries, the Dutch have been involved in large international projects. International cooperation is second nature for a small trading nation. It is our view that the large water challenges we face, can only be met if we work together. We invite you to work with us.
Big challenges... joint solutions - let's work together!
Your gate way to the Dutch water sector
The Dutch water sector is organized in the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP). This non-commercial partnership is a comprehensive network that unites Dutch water expertise, consisting of members from private companies, government, knowledge institutes and NGOs, acting as a centre of information on water expertise, policy developments and market opportunities.
The NWP gladly acts as your gateway to the Dutch water sector.
