SDGs: How Danish Water utility companies can enter developing countries

EVENT: The BOP Learning Lab came together with the Ministry of Foreign affairs and The Confederation of Danish Industries to investigate how Danish companies in the water sector can enter developing countries and contribute to the SDGs - and the outlook is good!

The UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 points out water challenges for all countries. World Economic Forum also has water as one of the major disruptors to global economy. If we take management of the water sector seriously and use good technologies, we can overcome water as a disruption.

But how?

Danish companies and NGOs are ready to work and help abroad - partnerships are a way to renew and implement effective water sector solutions. How such partnerships can be developed was discussed and shared by companies, experts and politicians.

At the end of the day, everybody had new ideas or new contacts to act upon. The follow-up on the SDGs creates a platform for transparency and can open doors to collaboration and trade. Partnerships, both B-2-B and B-2-C, are avenues that can be followed, and ‘we can all learn from each other’ as pointed out by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.

Video material, presentations and more information can be found here.
