International Water Ambition
The international water and climate adaptation policies pursued by the Netherlands are set out in the International Water Ambition (2016-2021). In his capacity of theme ambassador, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the NetherlandsHenk Ovink reinforces the Dutch international water ambition, and markets the Dutch expertise and know-how, including the experience gained within the Delta Programme. The Delta Programme contributes in particular the preventative approach, multi-layer flood risk management, climate-resilient cities, and Building with Nature as building blocks for foreign climate adaptation strategies, and collaborates closely with other delta countries. Attention is also paid to international coordination in smaller transnational waters, especially during crisis situations.
