Access to safe water and climate resilience are two of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which will trigger increased collaboration, innovative approaches and smart financing instruments in the water sector by development partners, knowledge providers, private sector and others. The inter-ministerial cooperation in the International Water Ambition (IWA, 2015-2021) of the Netherlands provides a novel policy framework while green climate funds and other financial instruments will support cooperation between implementing partners and generate co-financing from the private and public sector. Investment in water security is not only a social responsibility but also a business model to create global prosperity. The Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) acts as a centre of information on water expertise, policy developments and market opportunities.
