A rapid response to water related disasters
The Dutch Surge Support facility (DSS water) supports the operations of humanitarian organizations during and immediately after a disaster by deploying experienced water experts. The Netherlands, as a frontrunner in the field of water management, has a lot to offer in this regard. The deployment of DSS water experts contributes to saving lives and alleviating suffering of a vulnerable population that is affected by disasters. The pool of more than hundred DSS experts consists of top professionals in the field of water resources management, WASH and other affiliated areas of expertise.
International organisations that are interested in the deployment of DSS water experts, can contact the Netherlands Enterprise Agency by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Based on previously stated cooperation contracts (standby agreements), a request for support during or after a humanitarian disaster can be submitted.
