At the 7th World Water Forum in Daegu (South Korea), the Korean company K-Water and Deltares signed a memorandum of understanding. The agreement sets out how K-Water and Deltares will develop knowledge together in international projects. The main focus is on knowledge relating to water availability and quality, flood protection and asset management.
K-Water is a state-owned Korean company that was founded in 1967. As well as working on Korea’s national water management projects, the company is also active in the international market.
