Dutch-Chilean Webinar on business opportunities in Water Management in Chile

Water availability is a big issue in Chile. Especially in the north and central part of the country water scarcity and droughts affect cities, agriculture and mining activities. The production and transport of desalinated water is expensive and competing interests for water, combined with legislative inconsistencies and lack of systematic water rights registration, leads to a strong need for experienced partners with innovative water management solutions.

As the Dutch have years of experience in efficient water use water treatment and water reuse, companies and consultancy firms active in the integral supply chain of water production, treatment and transport can find impactful business opportunities in Chile. Providing (recovered) water in the right quantity and quality, at the right moment for the right application (drinking water, mining or agriculture) is a key opportunity.
