DUPC2: IHE Delft Partnership Programme for Water and Development

Working with partners in the global South is a key approach for IHE Delft to help solve water and development challenges. We believe that bringing together knowledge and experience from different perspectives will help find local solutions and strengthen capacities. DUPC2 supports a large number of partnership activities on education and training and research and innovation. The programme also aims to create synergies and further collaboration between activities and partners.
