Upcoming Events

 

In collaboration with German operators, GWP has developed the concept of a new model for partnerships between German local operators and operators from developing and emerging countries. This model was developed by GWP’s working group Operation and Capacity Development and in close cooperation with German development cooperation, especially Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues aims to be the leading political forum for the water industry in Germany. Both the international character of the participants from governments, non-governmental organisations, research and science and the participation of decision-makers of international water consumers from industry, energy and agriculture as well as the fact that Berlin is an internationally recognised know-how location in the water sector contribute to the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues.
German Water Partnership has supported the Export Initiative Environmental Technologies of the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety from the very beginning and has already successfully implemented many projects.
Would you like to enter a foreign market?
Then take advantage of measures supported by the Market Development Programme (MEP) of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi).
The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) assists GWP in successfully entering markets in developing and emerging countries as well as in establishing sustainable water solutions on site.
The German Water Partnership-Days are a series of events where German experts from the water sector meet with international decision-makers from the respective country to elaborate on appropriate solutions for the water industry. The GWP-Days are carried out by GWP and their active members.
GWP conducts a chamber and association partnership project (KVP) with the Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA) on behalf of sequa gGmbH funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). ACWUA is an association of the Arab water industry, which was founded in 2009. Moreover, it unites 117 members from 18 Arab countries. The most important group of members consists of water operators, ministries, authorities, non-governmental organisations, individuals and private companies.
As part of the chamber and association partnership programme, the BMZ has supported the DEVIWAS project – German-Vietnamese association partnership for competence development in the Vietnamese water sector – via Sequa GmbH. DEVIWAS was based on the cooperation between GWP and the Vietnamese Water and Wastewater Association VWSA. The project was completed successfully in 2019.
"Together as a strong network", GWP and its members present themselves with a joint booth at numerous trade fairs worldwide throughout the year. In addition to the booth, GWP is part of the general program at each fair.
