AVPN is a unique funders’ network based in Singapore committed to building a vibrant and high impact philanthropy and social investment community across Asia. We are an advocate, capacity builder, and platform that cuts across sectors to improve the effectiveness of members across the Asia Pacific region.
The Netherlands has demonstrated its capacity to apply its knowledge in the learning–by–doing projects and to develop an Integrated Strategy for the Ayeyarwady Delta. We are also helping to build capacity for the further development of Myanmar. We facilitate student scholarships and apprenticeships for young workers in the field of water management in Myanmar.
Myanmar recognizes Dutch expertise related to water, and the government has specifically requested the Netherlands to assist. The challenges in Myanmar and the Netherlands, both low lying delta’s, are very similar and so is the need for integrated water management in both countries. Many challenges means many opportunities for the Dutch water sector, not only in water management, but also in water sanitation, waste water treatment, drinking water, dredging, port developments, water transport, urban development, water & food, water & energy and water & industries.
