Bridging cultural gaps
Current global trends such as population and economic growth as well as climate change exert increasing pressure on water resources worldwide, which are the basis for food production, urban and industrial water supplies and hydropower. Experts are needed who understand that multiple problems of water resources management can only be addressed through a holistic approach considering both technical and socioeconomic problems of resources use. These experts should also have knowledge of the practices of project funding and international cooperation. And of course they must be familiar with the culture, language and politics of both sides and are skilled in intercultural communication. work4water has these compentences. work4water is in partnership in projects with best performing water supply utilities and institutions in Europe, Waternet in Amsterdam and Sachsen Wasser in Leipzig Germany and the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands.
