We are eager to share our know-how on, for example, protection against flooding, drought and water pollution.

Funding for water projects in developing countries

The overflow or scarcity of water can also be the focus of a project. Maybe you excel at water management. Maybe you have an innovative solution to improve water quality by purifying water. In many regions, the price of water is too high. Often, water is not available for communities in rural areas.
