- Access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation (Water and sanitation), and
- Water diplomacy.
The report includes separate chapters on each theme.
At the end of 2019, the program supported 114 activities contributing to water and development challenges in around 30 developing and transition countries. The activities are mainly concentrated around:
- The Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine, and Westbank Aquifer and Jordan River Basin) and wider North-African region,
- The Nile river basin, including the Eastern Nile,
- Mozambique, and the Zambezi River Basin,
- The Asian deltas, including the Mekong delta, Ganges-Bramaputra delta, Irawaddy delta and Ciliwung delta and
- Colombia, and the Magdelena River Basin.
See page IX for a map with the activities. The report also holds separate chapters per region, highlighting some of its activities in these regions.
The DUPC2 activities are jointly implemented with 188 partners of which 135 are local partners. The majority are knowledge institutions, but there is also substantial involvement of civil society, government and private sector partners. With around 60 of these partners IHE Delft collaborates already over a longer time period. See annex 1 with the details of the projects (partners, countries, subjects, websites) and annex 3 with a complete overview of the partners per country.
