DUTEP

The Dutch Training & Exposure programme (DUTEP) focuses on integrated urban water management in Indonesia.

The programme provides opportunities for staff from the Jakarta Capital City government to spend a period in the Netherlands to learn from best practices here.

The Indonesian staff spends this time in Rotterdam, the Dutch delta city. They carry out a research or internship project at a Dutch host organisation and receive training.

Bilateral cooperation

DUTEP is supported by the Dutch embassy in Indonesia and partners from education, business and government. It is implemented by a consortium consisting of the cities of Jakarta and Rotterdam, Waterboard Delfland, Van Oord, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and Nuffic.

The programme is a good example of new ways of bilateral cooperation, in which higher education, the corporate sector and the government work closely together to contribute either in money or in kind to the success of the programme.

Timeline and set-up

DUTEP phase 1 ran from 2014 to 2016 with 24 participants. The second phase runs from 2017 to 2019 with 30 participants.

DUTEP is flexible in its set-up: it can be implemented in different sectors, timeframes and countries. Added benefit is that the programme allows for different funding streams to be combined. The programme is designed and coordinated by Nuffic Neso Indonesia.
