Description

The Netherlands is experiencing major developments when it comes to water, too, and we must act now in anticipation of changing circumstances. The economic downturn has forced us to be more creative with the opportunities we have. The climate is changing, and we have to plan for hotter summers, wetter winters and heavier rainfall when developing our physical environment. This means that measures must be taken in both the water system and the water processing cycle (the chain of processes from drinking water supply to sewerage and wastewater treatment).
The National Administrative Agreement on Water sets out arrangements that should help us cope with these changes. One such arrangement involves cost savings by optimising the water processing cycle through an integrated approach. The agreement forms the basis for collaboration between drinking water suppliers, local authorities and water authorities, which will be vital for the goals to be achieved. The Water Coalition, which brings together public and private parties (the latter sometimes quite unexpected) and civil-society organisations, is currently focusing on households in the water processing cycle. What can households do to make the water processing cycle more sustainable, while also saving money, both for themselves and for society as a whole? Clever combinations can help us meet the social challenges we face in relation to water management.
The Water Coalition hopes to reinforce a trend in society, and to harness it to achieve water-related goals by entering into consultation with potentially interested parties, bringing them together in coalitions, sharing and disseminating their knowledge, and providing procedural support for initiatives if necessary.
