MARE-Asia at Asia Netherlands Water Learning Week


Asian Development Bank and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are organizing the 3rd Asia-Netherlands Water Learning Week. The theme is “Partnerships for Green Growth and Water Security”. Participants will contribute project case studies from Asia and the Netherlands and learn together in an intensive program how to leverage results from collaborative approaches in water investment projects for cities and river basins.

We, MARE-Asia will host two sub events of the learning week. On Tuesday 17th of June, we organize a field visit to city of Dordrecht. The objective of this visit is to get to know the learning and action alliance (LAA) focusing on climate adaptation and greening of the city. The municipality of Dordrecht and the members of Dordrecht LAA will meet the delegates at the Onderwijscentrum De Wereldwaag to share experiences. This meeting will be followed by a walking tour of the city to see the inner-city flood defenses and a bus tour to the green areas of the city.
