Evaluation meetings Sustainable Water Fund (FDW) 17 and 20 March 2015

FDW stimulating factor for cooperation, but procedures demand patience

The PPPLab was present at one of the two evaluation meetings of the Sustainable Water Fund (FDW), organised by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The meetings took place on 17 and 20 March in Amsterdam.

All attendants contributed with valuable feedback following from experiences with the first two FDW calls, and they already gave recommendations for a possible third call in 2016. In general, FDW is considered as a stimulating factor for cooperation, innovation and partnerships. However, the regulation is also seen as a tough procedure which demands quite some patience from the applicants.

A full report of the meetings can be found here (in Dutch), and all presentations are available at this website. Suggestions and other inputs can still be send to Astrid Broekaart (astrid.broekaart@rvo.nl) and Pim van der Male (pim-vander.male@minbuza.nl).
