    00:00:02,320 --> 00:00:09,440
    As a key element for life, Water has been on the agenda
    of many policy-makers and practitioners for decades.

    2
    00:00:09,760 --> 00:00:13,040
    But climate change,
    growing populations, pandemics

    3
    00:00:13,320 --> 00:00:16,880
    and insufficient management of water
    are making issues worse.

    4
    00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:21,560
    Water is a fundamental need,
    even more so in this period of coronavirus.

    Climate change in this area
    affects us immensely.

    6
    00:00:26,840 --> 00:00:29,120
    It forces us to step up our efforts.

    7
    00:00:29,320 --> 00:00:31,600
    To do more, faster, better.

    Intro

    00:00:35 -> 00:00:38
    The Sustainable Water Fund

    00:00:40 -> 00:00:45
    Initiating systemic change, by doing things differently.

    8
    00:00:44,520 --> 00:00:49,080
    Global and local water challenges cannot be
    overcome by public involvement alone.

    9
    00:00:49,800 --> 00:00:54,640
    We are here to make people understand
    that it is important to pay for water

    10
    00:00:54,920 --> 00:00:56,560
    in order to preserve the pumps.

    11
    00:00:58,080 --> 00:01:03,840
    Inclusion, innovation and private sector involvement
    are vital factors in any water strategy.

    12
    00:01:04,400 --> 00:01:08,000
    But how do you make these
    public-private partnerships in water work?

    00:01:08,440 --> 00:01:11,240
    Over the last 10 years,
    the Sustainable Water Fund

    14
    00:01:11,480 --> 00:01:15,000
    has generated a wealth
    of experience in its implementation.

    15
    00:01:17,160 --> 00:01:21,840
    If there is enough water, we will change our life
    in a sustainable way.

    the introduction of new practices into existing structures,
    processes and constant learning.

    18
    00:01:31,720 --> 00:01:36,840
    We continue cracking our minds to think
    how best we can make this more sustainable,

    how best we can make it scalable.

    20
    00:01:40,440 --> 00:01:46,160
    The Sustainable Water Fund combines public
    and private capacity, finance and resources

    21
    00:01:46,360 --> 00:01:49,520
    to explore sustainable,
    high-quality service delivery models

    22
    00:01:49,720 --> 00:01:52,120
    and new water management practices.

    23
    00:01:52,400 --> 00:01:58,920
    The fund co-finances projects focused on inclusivity,
    environment and financial sustainability

    24

    in the areas of drinking water and sanitation,
    water efficiency in agriculture

    25
    00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:06,800
    and integrated water resource management.

    26
    00:02:07,400 --> 00:02:15,480
    This pump represents great hope,
    for me and many other women in the village.

    00:02:15,840 --> 00:02:20,200
    Now the pump is nearby,
    available every day.

    28
    00:02:21,080 --> 00:02:25,600
    From small tech companies to water utilities,
    NGOs and national governments,

    29
    00:02:25,800 --> 00:02:29,600
    the fund works with over 40 partnership projects
    in 20 countries,

    30

    involving more than 200 private sector organisations
    and public entities.

    31
    00:02:35,640 --> 00:02:39,560
    As the world works together
    to overcome the effects of the global pandemic,

    32
    00:02:39,840 --> 00:02:43,040
    solving the world’s water challenges
    is more urgent than ever.

    33
    00:02:43,760 --> 00:02:48,680
    With our partners, private and public,
    we are proud to contribute to a better understanding

    34
    00:02:48,920 --> 00:02:52,560
    of partnerships and sustainability
    in the global water domain,

    35
    00:02:52,800 --> 00:02:55,480
    reaching the Sustainable Development Goals.

    36
    00:02:55,760 --> 00:02:57,040
    We empower,

    SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

    37
    00:02:57,240 --> 00:03:02,800
    and the moment we do the empowerment,
    we leave the other cog moving by itself.

    38
    00:03:04,120 --> 00:03:08,240
    The Sustainable Water Fund is a programme
    from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency.
