Institute for Water Education


Water poses a serious challenge to every part of the world. Too many people remain without access to water and sanitation. This makes their lives difficult: their health suffers, and prosperity remains out of reach. Increasingly frequent and severe droughts and floods - a result of climate change - add to the challenge. The IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, work to change this with a vision: a world free of poverty and injustice in which people manage their water and environmental resources sustainably and equitably.

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world. Based in Delft, the Netherlands, IHE Delft confers fully accredited MSc degrees and PhD degrees in collaboration with Dutch partner universities. The Institute conducts research and supports capacity development to address the world's water challenges.

IHE Delft is committed to solving the world's water crisis by educating the water leaders of the future, particularly those from developing countries and countries in transition. The demand by far exceeds the number of professionals that the Institute can educate. IHE Delft aims to bridge this gap by making education available for free on its Open Education Platform.
