ADB Water and Deltares Seminar Series: Collaborating on Innovative and Sustainable Solutions for Integrated Water Management

11 August 2020 to 06 October 2020



Following a successful seminar series with Water Aid on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and health in the context of the pandemic, the ADB Water Sector Group is collaborating with Deltares, an independent Netherlands-based knowledge institute, to bring attention to the issues of water resources management.

In five webinars, Deltares will share its expertise and tools to facilitate innovative and sustainable solutions pertaining to the use and risks of water and soil. This knowledge sharing can help inform project design and implementation in ADB developing member countries. This is the first webinar series that the ADB Water Sector Group has held for public participation.
