Palestinian Dutch Academic Cooperation in Water 2nd phase
Dec 2016 - Mar 2020
Donor: Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Middle East and North Africa
The PADUCO Program objectives and related activities are starting from the capacity of the Palestinian higher education sector to contribute to the functioning of the Palestinian water sector in a broad sense. However, rather than addressing the capacities per se, the majority of the activities are directly concerned with the challenges phased by the water sector and the objective of the program to contribute to resolving these challenges by looking at policies and practices. In that respect, for the partner universities the program has a high level of “learning-by-doing” element, which is supported by the following principles: applied and relevant research and education; national cooperation with the water sector in a broad sense and national and internaitonal academic cooperation with Palestinian and Dutch universities.
