Chile and the Netherlands have renewed their commitment to cooperate in the field of water resources management and climate adaptation for another four years.
Last August, Minister Alfredo Moreno of the Chilean Ministry of Public Works and Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) to formalise the extension of this water cooperation.
The LoI aims to intensify cooperation in areas related to integrated water resources management and water governance; coastal zone management; and water technology and circular economy.
The forms of cooperation under the LoI framework include:
- sharing knowledge, best practices and technologies;
- working on pilot projects;
- advocating for dedicated matchmaking and capacity building.
The LoI reinforces friendly relations and the bilateral scientific, technical, managerial, educational and institutional cooperation.
Under the framework of the Partners For Water Programme, the Netherlands Water Partnership is working to enable business development and cooperation initiatives in Chile.
The Partnership is inviting Netherlands-based interested in water related opportunities in Chile to contact NWP Project Manager, Milagros Sosa, at email@example.com.
