Bilateral Meetings

In Amsterdam we manage water more and more from a holistic point of view: Water is all around us. Wherever we live, work or spend our leisure time it affects our health, food, energy, environment and transport. All that water forms a water cycle.

In 2006 Waternet has been established: one single organisation for the total water cycle. One organisation that is responsible for ensuring a safe drinking water supply, for adequate sewerage, high-quality waste water treatment, efficient groundwater control, effective surface water management and secured flood risk management.
This holistic approach is unique in the Netherlands.

Knowing that water is essential for the sustainability of human life, Waternet feels a responsibility that goes beyond our national boundaries.
Water problems, not only in Amsterdam but all over the world, require increasingly more and more total and integral solutions.

Waternet is one of the Amsterdam utilities that care for people in the world who have no access to the basic necessities of life, meaning they have no access to safe drinking water and good sanitation. Waternet is keen to share experiences and expertise on integral water management with colleagues in the rest of the world: with partners working in deprived situations, on a solidarity basis, using its solidarity funds and with partners in developed countries where we can learn from each other and also benefit from each other in many other fields as well.

This is why World Waternet was established: a sister organisation that manages these partnerships worldwide.
