Netherlands invests €27 million in water sector
 
Maputo, 25 Feb (AIM) – The Dutch government invested over €27 million (about $37 million) in the Mozambican water sector during 2010, according to the Dutch embassy.

According to the Embassy, in the context of their long-standing partnership, Mozambique and the Netherlands now want to explore new forms of cooperation based on “public-private partnerships”.

To this end the Dutch embassy organised a seminar in Maputo on 24 February attended by government and municipal representatives (including the mayors of Maputo and Beira), and 50 specialists and managers from the water sector.

The purpose of the meeting was to make a “market assessment” of the water sector in Mozambique and in the Netherlands, to analyse the water policies currently in force, and to look at the challenges facing the sector in the coming years.

The participants, the embassy said, discussed water supply and sanitation, the management of river basins (including the navigability of rivers), coastal protection and land reclamation, and agriculture and irrigation.

”During the thematic debates, it was clear that, in dealing with the current complex problems, various partnerships should be taken into consideration, paying attention to institutional matters, technical innovation and management”, said the Embassy.

It concluded that the specific problems of the water sector cannot be approached one by one, and what is required are “systemic solutions”.
