SNV Netherlands Development Organisation

Profile statement provided by the company

SNV Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) is an international development organisation dedicated to a society in which all people, irrespective of race, class or gender, enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development.

We work with government, local development partners, business, knowledge institutes and low-income communities, to improve the quality of life for millions of people by developing locally-owned approaches, strengthening governance systems and improving markets for the poor. We use our technical knowledge, 50 plus years of experience, passionate staff, extensive local presence and global footprint, to make a lasting difference in people’s lives.

Our WASH initiatives provide access to improved, sustainable drinking water services and sanitary facilities for millions of people. Long term sustainability lies at the core of our work. We strengthen public governance around WASH services, support institutional changes and capacity, develop financially viable services, and improve asset management of existing WASH infrastructure. This includes strengthening the roles of civil society and the private sector in advocacy and operation, as well as promoting sector and stakeholder dialogue and reflection about changing needs and standards in the light of increasing urbanisation and the Sustainable Development Goals.
