Water is essential to human life, for economic growth and social wellbeing. This key message is manifested in the Sustainable Development Goal 6: To ensure universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030. This is a major challenge given the global community, given that water scarcity today affects more than 40 percent of all people and that climate change is likely to exacerbate this situation. The need for innovative technologies, capacity development, better water management tools, and new approaches and solutions to resolve our global water issues is therefore greater than ever before.

Our expertise covers all aspects necessary for the planning, design, and implementa­tion of water-related projects. NIRAS takes an integrated and holistic approach to water and development. Projects must be administered wisely and generate both benefits to society and maintain critical environmental functions.

We always ensure that our teams include specialists from all relevant fields, including engineers, biologists, environmentalists, geologists, socio-economists and financial and institutional specialists. We apply tested, yet innovative, methodologies and rely on experience we have acquired on a very large number of water-related assignments in a wide range of countries and contexts.
