比安卡·尼霍夫:没有水,就没有绿色复苏

比安卡Nijhof writes how the water sector and Green Recovery must come together. Because without water, there will be no Green Recovery at all.

Knowledge sharing to LATAM

过去几个月,荷兰水事伙伴关系与荷兰大使馆在七个拉丁美洲国家(阿根廷、智利、哥伦比亚、墨西哥、秘鲁、多米尼加共和国和巴拿马)举办了一系列网络研讨会á).

知识交流、良好做法和联合解决方案是这些网络研讨会的重要组成部分。解决该区域一些最紧迫的与水有关的挑战,对荷兰和世界其他地区也至关重要。

会议集中讨论了循环经济、水质、粮食安全和水、流域管理和复原力以及水治理等议题。

为什么我觉得我必须分享这个?

We had more than 1400 people participate in these webinars, which showed the water topics has direct relevance to people’s current challenges.

“这显示,再次,水不仅是crucial for our health and wellbeing, but it is an essential element to a sustainable, circular economy."

To me, it merely showed, once again, how water is not just crucial for our health and wellbeing, but that it is a key element to a sustainable, circular economy, to food security and to a resilient way of life.

第二,网络研讨会展示了水如何与我们的可持续未来全球议程,即可持续发展目标相互关联。

在这种情况下,网络研讨会直接讨论了可持续发展目标3(良好的健康和福利)、6(清洁水和卫生设施)、11(可持续城市和社区)、12(负责任的消费和生产)和13(气候行动),旨在深入了解这些工具,可持续管理可持续发展目标相关水资源的创新和合作。

连接绿色复苏

In 2018, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, PBL, published ‘未来水资源挑战的地理’, a report which – in the literal sense of the word – mapped the relevance of water in almost all of today’s world issues.

It also showed in a powerful way how water is interconnected with the Sustainable Development Goals. And not just the ones mentioned above, but all of them!

Now, two years later, there is much talk about the Green Recovery, and not only in the European Union. Plans are being made, and budgets are set aside for re-greening countries and continents. And rightly so.

然而,考虑到可持续发展目标,这些计划是否与水资源部门有足够的联系?我们是否与正在实施的政策、措施和预算有足够的联系?如果没有,那么现在是时候这样做了!

Every day our sector is developing some of the concrete and innovative solutions that are needed to make our world sustainable. Speaking for the Dutch Water Sector, I can only repeatedly emphasise the value of those solutions.

想想我们的(节水)生产工艺技术,我们预测农业用水压力的工具,我们监测水质的解决方案,我们流域管理的综合方法和我们创新的水治理解决方案。

共同确定联合项目

As the荷兰水伙伴关系, we are here to help our sector showcase to the world what we have on offer. And the other way around, we function as a gateway for governments, policymakers, businesses, and investors wishing to find their way to our sector and our solutions.

拉丁美洲的网络研讨会是一个鼓舞人心的例子,说明即使在第19届会议期间,我们如何能够继续寻找新的方法,使专家们就相关的议题聚集在一起,从而激发后续行动,确定联合项目。

There will be many more opportunities for collaboration if we know how to find each other. And there will be new ways of sharing, connecting, and developing business.

专注于正确的业务

“我们都想做的业务,但它正变得clearer than ever that we need to focus on the right business."

In the end, we all want to do business. But it is becoming more apparent than ever, that we also need to focus on the right business: sustainable business.

用这家全球科学公司营养、健康和可持续生活的前首席执行官费克·西杰贝斯马(Feike Sijbesma)的话来说,帝斯曼:“在一个失败的世界里,我们既不能成功,也不能称我们的公司成功。”

Green Recovery ambitions give our sector new opportunities to connect to the right business. And also the other way around: a Green Recovery cannot do without us. Because without water, there will be no Green Recovery at all.
