Water, climate and energy: the Netherlands and Ukraine
The Netherlands is your partner in tackling water, climate and energy issues.
The Dutch delta has the world’s best flood defences. 70% of the Dutch population lives below sea level. That’s why the Netherlands has so much expertise in flood control and clean water.
The Netherlands works together with other countries to tackle water-related issues around the world, like irrigation, safe river banks and clean drinking water. Our country also contributes to transboundary management of 7 international river basins in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
A Special Envoy for International Water Affairs has been appointed to promote Dutch knowledge and expertise in the area of water management.
Climate and energy
The Netherlands wants to promote the use of sustainable energy.
The Netherlands endorses international agreements on reducing CO2 emissions and the depletion of natural resources.
