Water does not stop at borders. The world faces major water challenges, whether it is too much, too little or too polluted water. These challenges require holistic and sustainable solutions which call for cooperation, and the exchange of knowledge and expertise. The Dutch water sector invites you to team up to find the best solutions for a water driven future.

Dutch water expertise

The Netherlands is a world leader in water management. Our country, often referred to as Holland, is a relatively small, low lying, densely populated deltaic region at the western edge of Europe. Living in this challenging and vulnerable environment, with 29% prone to flooding, spurs innovation and cooperation. By constantly adapting our approach to water over decades, we have gained an advantage and we want to share our knowledge and skills internationally. At the same time, we too face our challenges in light of climate change and would like to learn from others on creating a sustainable future.

We believe that by putting our heads together, we can achieve more in tackling global water related challenges. That is why this website features the best the Dutch water sector has to offer, nationally and internationally. Join our waternetwork!
