The Sustainable Water Fund programme (FDW) is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) facility that aims to contribute to water safety and water security in developing countries.
This facility is closed. You can no longer apply for a grant.
With the FDW programme, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency supports collective initiatives between governmental bodies, industry and NGOs.
Programme and Projects
Through FDW, we execute 40 projects in 22 countries and in 13 sectors. The total budget for this programme is €99 million. So far, 72 million has been paid out.
On the website Aiddata.rvo.nl you can find all FDW projects that have been active or started since 2012. This portal offers an overview of all official development aid (ODA) projects and programmes executed by us. You can refine your search by using filter options such as country, sector and programme. FDW projects that have been finished before 2015 have not been included in the Aiddata list.
