What is the Sustainable Water Fund (FDW)
The Sustainable Water Fund-programme (FDW) is a Public-Private Partnership facility which aims to contribute to water safety and water security in developing countries. In real terms this means RVO.nl supports collective initiatives between governmental bodies, industry and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) that focus on the following subthemes:
• Improved access to drinking water and sanitation (including solid waste)
• Efficient and sustainable water use, particularly within agriculture
• Safe deltas and improved basin management.
