24/7 Safe, Smart and Sustainable
Clean, accessible water for all is essential for a safe and stable society. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. However, due to economic differences or poor infrastructure, millions of people, most of them children, still suffer from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene. There is a sincere need to close the human dignity gap.
The provision of reliable clean water to cities, towns and rural communities in the face of rapid urbanisation in developing countries is a major challenge facing government institutions. Our experience and expertise delivered through our local offices in these countries enables us to take on the most complex projects and provide innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions.
Royal HaskoningDHV works closely with parties for water delivery and reuse, to find innovative solutions for a more sustainable use of this primary resource. In addition, an integrated (urban) water system approach enables our clients to align the fresh water distribution to the local fluctuating demands of both human lives and industrial use.
Where infrastructure exists, we excel in promoting strategic asset management. Consideration of aging infrastructure, water threats, investment challenges, price regulation, the transformation from construction to maintenance all play a role. The vision is a more sustainable water supply, since there is a demand for a new approach, an intelligent water supply system and innovative water technologies that provide safe water at affordable cost.
