The history and prosperity of the Dutch nation are inextricably linked with water. Two-thirds of the country would regularly flood if it weren’t for a complex, interlinked system of dykes and surge barriers. The Dutch also excel in the field of water technology, including water production, distribution, wastewater and sewage treatment and sanitation.
