This nomination to the AWP of Filet Consulting as a water sector engagement and partnership facilitation specialist is presented in collaboration with my two partners at The Water Agency https://www.thewateragency.com/ – Gregor van Essen and Frodo van Oostveen. As three sole traders we have combined all our capability to provide an integrated engagement service for the water sector.
Our capability is based on offering a multiple platform engagement service with a focus on:
• professional peer to peer engagement;
• young professionals and student challenges and engagement;
• business collective positioning engagement.
Each platform can be purpose designed to operate with a specific participant group. More effectively though, all 3 platforms can be offered jointly so that the overlap and linkages between the three platforms offers a synergistic engagement opportunity in a location/region.
The themes of water management that have and can be a focus for the engagement platforms are diverse – ranging from flood risk management, resilience in urban design and catchment management, and port development. The focus can be at a visionary/strategic level, practioner focused in terms of tools and skills needed to solve issues or on helping lead agencies better build awareness and community understanding on complex water issues.
We engage across all parts of the water sector to harness the collective skills and foresight of motivated participants and design roadmaps that connect people and organisations around specific opportunities and challenges.
Our experience in the Asia-Pacific includes team members based in Yangon, Myanmar and in Semarang, Indonesia along with additional past projects in China and Singapore.
