3rd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week

Description

ADB and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are organizing the 3rd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week. 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.

The learning week is organized under the water knowledge partnership between ADB and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, supported by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs through ADB’s Water Financing Partnership Facility.

Theme

The theme is Partnerships for Green Growth and Water Security. Participants 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.

Target participants

Participation in the learning week is targeted to project teams from Asia that seek to build new ways of cooperation into new or ongoing urban and basin water projects. To successfully complete 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.

Team leaders of projects supported by the Asian Development Bank’s Water Financing Program 2011-2020 are invited to send a proposal.
