News The NWB Fund: a result of the Gurria Task Force on Financing Water for All

The Nederlandse Waterschapsbank N.V. (NWB or Dutch Bank for Water Boards), in collaboration with the Dutch Water Boards and the Association of Water Boards, has created a fund of 25M€ for water management projects in developing countries. Its purpose is to finance international collaboration projects carried out by the Dutch water boards. Mr Fon Koemans, chairman of the management board of the NWB, told the WWC that this initiative is a direct outcome of the recommendations issued by the Task Force on Financing Water for All, in which he is a member. This Task Force was formed at the end of 2005 and led by Angel Gurria, and provided a cross-cutting perspective on Innovative Financing Mechanisms for Local Actions for the Forum of Mexico.
