- Improved access to drinking water and sanitation.
- Efficient and sustainable water use, particularly within agriculture.
- Safe deltas and improved basin management.
A long term contribution is made towards sustainable economic growth, self-reliance and fight against poverty.
The requesting partnerships comprise at least one public body and business. In addition, the involvement of an NGO or knowledge institution is mandatory of the participating parties, at least one must come from The Netherlands and one must come from the country in which the activity is being set up. One party will apply for the subsidy on behalf of the partnership. The secretarial role can be taken on by both Dutch and foreign parties.
