Water Experts for the World
January 28, 2019 Editor 0

There are at least 125 advanced Dutch engineering and architecture businesses with global clientele, providing such services as flood control, wastewater management, desalination, flood insurance, infrastructure design, algae management, and other forms of advanced water treatment. Together with Dutch government agencies and research groups, these businesses are changing the way others think about preparing for flooding and related disasters. And they’re setting an example for a benign neo-mercantile business model that other countries can follow.
