Chamber Association Partnership (DEVIWAS)

German-Vietnamese Association Partnership for competence development in the Vietnamese water sector

Within the framework of the Chamber and Association Partnership Programme, BMZ is supporting the project DEVIWAS – German-Vietnamese Association Partnership for Competence Development in the Vietnamese Water Sector via Sequa GmbH. DEVIWAS is being implemented based on cooperation between GWP and the Vietnamese Water and Wastewater Association VWSA.

The first phase of the project ran from June 2013 to May 2016 and was successfully completed. The second phase has been running since June 2016 and will be completed in May 2019. The project is implemented by a GWP project team in the ACWUA office in Amman, supported by technical management in Berlin. The project aims to support VWSA in on-demand association work and effective transfer of know-how in the sector.
