About the event:

Date: July 5th, 2018
Time: 9 am – 4.45 pm
Location: Biesbosch MuseumEiland

On Thursday July 5th, NLandscape and the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) co-hosted a knowledge event on Water & Landscapes. On this full day, out in the beautiful landscape of the Biesbosch and the Noordwaard, partners from both the water and the landscape sector had the opportunity to connect and learn. 

Aim of the day: the role of water in landscapes is crucial, just as water is part of a wider landscape. In order to emphasize this connection, the Platform NLandscape and NWP have joined forces to host an inspiring day for forward thinkers in both the landscape and water sector to connect. To inspire new opportunities for collaboration, (inter)national cases were presented that show how water and landscapes are integrated and how cooperation between partners in both sectors can lead to fruitful results in international cooperation. The formation of new partnerships and closer collaboration are in line with the (inter)national policies towards integrated approaches as formulated in SDG’s or the new Dutch policy for International Cooperation.

Organisers: Annemarie Winkelhagen (WNF), Melvin van der Veen (Both ENDS), Omer van Renterghem (Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Arnoud Keizer (Aidenvironment), Merijn van Leeuwen (Wetlands International), Maaike Feltmann (NWP), Lotte Roosendaal (Secretariat), André Brasser (Secretariat/Beagle Solutions)
