Institute for Water Education
IHE Delft Institute for Water Education is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world, with a mission to strengthen capacity in the water sector and support sustainable development, especially in the Global South. Research, education, and institutional strengthening form the three pillars of the Institute’s activities. Sub-Saharan Africa has been a focal area of the Institute for more than 30 years. The Institute has forged strong and lasting partnerships with universities, government agencies, NGOs, and private sector institutions across the continent. Much of the institutes work has focused on the application of both traditional and nature-based solutions to achieve water security in a fair and equitable way that also conserves vital ecosystems.
