Dutch contributions to World Water Week 2021

Different Dutch organisations - NGOs, Government, Knowledge Institutes and Companies - are contributing to the extensive World Water Week 2021 programme. Water solutions to accelerate action on climate adaptation and SDG6 are high on the agenda of course. But in light of the current corona crisis, the focus is also on how to fast-track progress and build resilience faster. Water can play a pivotal role in a more sustainable and resilient future, the Dutch water sector is fully committed to achieving that.
