Description

Within the context of the Ghana WASH Window (GWW), NABC, FME and NWP receive a delegation of 15 Ghanaian companies /NGOs/knowledge Institutions and 7 government officials in the first week of October 2014 (29 sept. -3 Oct.). The purpose of the visit of the Ghanian delegation is to identify and select Dutch partners in the public and private sector to collaborate with for the third GWW call for proposals. The third call will open in October 2014 and will close by the end of January 2015. The objective of the GWW third call is to provide innovate solutions in the field of:

  • Sanitation and hygiene
  • Improved waste management (solid and liquid)
  • Access to and use of safe drinking water
  • Urban water management

Participating Ghanaian companies and organisations have been selected by the Netherlands Embassy in Accra and the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP). Therefore, the screened proposals have proven potential to obtain funding through the Ghana WASH Window. Government officials with an explicit interest in the WASH fields of activities are also part of the delegation. Amongst others are the Minister of Water Hon Julius Debrah, Director of Environmental Health and Sanitation of the Ministry of Local Government, and multiple mayors of major Ghanaian cities.

NABC, NWP and FME organise a full-week programme for the delegation which includes various in-depth matchmaking sessions for the Ghanian delegation. These matchmaking session will improve the understanding of the third Ghana WASH Window and facilitate the development of partnerships between Ghanian and Dutch parties which ideally results in a solid proposal for the third GWW call for proposals.
