International Drinking Water Projects
IDWP stands for ‘International Drinking Water Projects’. This website offers an overview of international development cooperation projects undertaken by Dutch water supply companies. Every day, they share their knowledge and expertise with other water supply companies throughout the world to ensure that clean, safe drinking water becomes available to all. They do so on the basis of (corporate) social responsibility, and because they realize that the expertise developed in the Netherlands over the past 150 years is desperately needed elsewhere in the world. The projects also help the companies themselves to develop new knowledge, and they make working in the water sector even more interesting and attractive for their staff, who are able to gain valuable international experience.

The objective of the programme is to improve and extend the production and distribution of drinking water in North-Sulawesi, the Moluccas and Papua, East Indonesia, through the development of public-private partnerships with local drinking water companies.
