Wetskills Egypt 2012

About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

For more than 36 years, the Advisory Panel on Water Management (APP) contributed to Egyptian-Dutch development cooperation in the water sector. The Panel has always functioned as a think-thank and as a communication body between departments and ongoing water and sanitation projects. The Egyptian side of the panel is represented by various Egyptian ministries and the Holding Company for Drinking Water and Sanitation. The Netherlands is represented by the ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation, Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and the Netherlands Water Partnership. The panel will meet in Egypt during the second week of November to discuss the way forward of the Egyptian/Dutch water cooperation. Goal of the meeting is to take a decision on concrete projects for future cooperation. The Wetskills students have the opportunity make a valuable contribution to this.

What is the Wetskills in Egypt about?

The project was formulated to offer a selection of very motivated Dutch and Egyptian students (Bachelor and Master) a unique opportunity to work together on a number of water issues. Parties of the Dutch water sector and their Egyptian partners formulated the issues. In multidisciplinary and international-oriented teams, the students gain more in-depth knowledge on the water issues of tomorrow.

The teams presented their cases during a central presentation event in the Egyptian/Dutch High level panel meeting on Water Management (28 and 29 November).
