Blue Deal

The Blue Deal programme offers long-term collaboration with regional and national governments in finding and developing solutions to improve water management. 

In recent decades, water-related disasters have affected increasing numbers of people, animals and businesses worldwide. We can make a greater contribution to finding solutions to these problems if we work together.

Dutch Water Authorities, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management have therefore joined forces in a programme known as the ‘Blue Deal’.

Goal

The Blue Deal programme runs till the end of 2030. Its goal is to help 20 million people in 40 catchment areas around the world gain access to clean, sufficient and safe water.

Focus

The Blue Deal programme focuses on providing support, creating opportunities for people and businesses, and the exchange of knowledge and experience in water management and water governance with other countries.

The programme offers long-term collaboration with regional and national governments in finding and developing solutions to improve water management.
