World Waternet was founded in 2007 on the initiative of the regional public water authority Amstel, Gooi and Vecht (AGV) and Waternet, the public water company of Amsterdam and surroundings. Waternet provides water services to 1.3 million people and is the only water company in the Netherlands that covers the entire water cycle. World Waternet uses the expertise of both organisations, Waternet and AGV, to help improve the performance of foreign public water organisations.
