Toelichting (Engels) Like the Netherlands, Oman faces huge challenges in the field of water management. Therefore an intensified relationship and cooperation with the Netherlands has been started a year ago. A mutual Taskforce was established to solve the water problems by learning from each other. This article describes the water challenges of Oman and highlights the recent developments in the cooperation between Oman and the Netherlands. Oman, just as the Netherlands, has an old tradition on water management. The centuries old falaj system to this day provides for example date palm cultivation and villages with water. With a sundial the gates of a sophisticated irrigation system are opened or closed. It is possible to buy or sell water rights if necessary. But also Oman has an extensive modern drinking water system based on desalination, a system of recharge and retention dams and reuses most of its waste water. In Oman living with water is, like in the Netherlands, of the utmost importance. Due to Climate Change, economic growth and a growing population maintaining an adequate supply of water for agricultural and domestic use is one of Oman’s most pressing issues. The article shows that, although the water situation in both countries differs, there are many possibilities to exchange knowledge and ideas in the field of water governance and water management. At the same time the article shows how such a cooperation process can be set up.
