Synergy: increasing local ownership through environmental and social assessment

2 May 2022

At the start of this year, the Netherlands Water Partnership, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/International Cooperation and the NCEA organised a webinar to discuss the potential of Environmental and Social Assessment to increase local ownership of water management programmes. Cases from Mali, Niger and Bangladesh were presented by Dutch embassy staff and local stakeholders, such as government authorities. Alignment of the Water Support Programme and the NCEA Environmental Assessment Programme - both funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs - is a win-win situation according to Dutch embassies.
