Climate Change – The Netherlands & India


Climate change is one of the most crucial environmental, social and economic issue the world is facing today. It is altering the global water cycle with cross sector impact affecting livelihoods , water systems and resources.

India and The Netherlands share a very strong relationship, which started way back in 1600s through the sea route. . And today also, WATER is one of the important factors which binds these two nations together.

Indo Dutch collaborations are becoming stronger realising the importance of sustainable water management, river rejuvenation, resilient flood management ecosystem, clean water for agriculture, leveraging technology and innovation for the changing world order, keeping in mind the adverse effects of climate change.

It can be seen from various initiatives being undertaken by both the governments -be it India’s Namami Gange, Jal Jeevan Mission programs, or Netherlands’ Room for River initiative, programs focussing on building with nature, agro water projects focussing on “more crop per drop” etc, the focus has been on the sustainable management of water resources.

The strong ties between the two countries can be evident from the visits of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Netherlands in 2017, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s visit to India in 2018 and the Royal Visit in 2019.

Now it is the time to take this relationship, collaborations to new heights!
It is the time to ADAPT new thinking, new policies, new measures for the water sector!
