Singapore – Netherlands Water House




The Singapore Netherlands Water House (SNWH) is a platform for networking, communication, and cooperation amongst the Dutch water sector in Singapore. It has served to connect the players, both small and large firms with short and long periods of activity in the ASEAN region. In 2016 it was time for an upgrade and to present a vision to further enhance its added value to SNWH members and utilize its collective expertise for the benefit of all parties involved.


Therefore, we present a roadmap structure whereby knowledge sharing and networking is at the core of its purpose. SNWH will facilitate the organization of frequent Water Series that are focused around interesting themes. SNWH members can host (together with Dutch and/or Singapore partner) a Water Series (presentation and networking opportunity) at their office.


The subjects of these quarterly meetings trickle down from trending subjects in the water sector (see below) – and are an upgrade of the three themes of the SG-NL Magazine presented during the Singapore International Water Week 2016.


The themes are:

  • Water efficiency and Value
  • Water management and Resilience
  • Institutional transition and Governance
  • Innovative water system implementations

There will be an interchange of knowledge amongst its SNWH members but also with local water players.
