UAE, Netherland likely to partner on water conservation and efficiency


One of the highlights of the Dubai Sustainability week was the visit of Dutch envoy international water affairs, Henk Ovink. During his visit he said that there were many opportunities for both the countries, Netherlands and UAE to cooperate on efficient water use.

“There is a lot of development going on but it is not enough. It is an opportunity for the UAE to collaborate across the Gulf and for The Netherlands to bring knowledge and expertise to that collaboration and strengthen the approach of water resilience,” Mr Ovink said.

Dutch research groups – such as Deltares, which opened an office in the capital on Tuesday are researching ways to cut water use in energy production. “We have been busy providing information about the water levels and waves for oil companies,” said Geoff Toms, manager of Deltares in the Middle East and the Gulf.
