Partners for Water programme | Lunch Session (Dutch particpants only!) The Partners for Water programme provides support to Dutch water sector organisations, profit and non-profit, that work together to realise their international objectives in the field of water. Partners for Water acts as a stepping stone for Dutch organisations that have the ambition to venture abroad and promote a new Dutch technology or approach. The programme has its focus at the heart of the Dutch water sector – organisations from within the water sector work together in the programme, helping to give it shape. In this lunch session you will be presented the new programme for 2016 - 2021.
