DUPC co-funded projects from 2008 to 2015

'Working in partnership' is a key approach of IHE Delft. Many activities are carried out in partnership with partners particularly from developing and transition countries. Partners are academic institutes and to an increasing extent also non-academic organisations. 

This approach of 'Working in partnership' has considerably increased the institutes' and its partners’ impact at the global and local levels, and has been strongly supported by the DGIS - IHE Delft Programmatic Cooperation (DUPC). By the end of 2015, DUPC is funding 104 activities, involving over 221 partner institutes from almost 68 countries of which 50 are developing countries and countries in transition. Around 70 institutes come from developed countries.
 
Below a number of projects in the period 2008-2015 are presented which have been co-funded by the DUPC programme. The Annual Report 2015 (see link) gives an elaborated overview of all activities. If you are interested in a project please contact the contact person.
