3rd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week Underway
UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and the Asian Development Bank organize the 3rd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week from 16 to 20 June 2014 in Delft, the Netherlands.
Participants from selected Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Vietnam) will contribute project case studies from Asia and the Netherlands and learn together in an intensive program how to leverage results from collaborative approaches in water investment projects for cities and river basins.
The program will build on the successful experience of the 1st and 2nd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week in which more than 60 Asian water leaders compared experiences with colleagues in the Netherlands in making smart choices for water security and green growth.
During the week’s intensive program, the selected teams will work and learn in partnership with dedicated host organizations and experts from the Netherlands and UNESCO-IHE.
The participating project teams will work together with dedicated ‘mirror teams’ from the Netherlands water sector mobilized by the UNESCO-IHE Organizing Team. By working together intensively, they will address the challenges posed by the project team, develop innovative solutions, and share experience through knowledge exchange.
