GWP@Twitter

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?

“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.
