The annual Global Water Partnership Consulting Partners Meeting was held in Stockholm on August 18–19, 2011. The theme of this year's meeting was “Water Security as a Catalyst for Achieving Food Security”.
Since its inception in 1996, the GWP network has grown rapidly to span 2407 Partner organizations in 157 countries. The main purpose of the Consulting Partners meeting is to monitor the strategic direction of the Network, as set out in the GWP 2009-2013 Strategy, as well as to receive and comment on the annual activity and financial reports of the Steering Committee.
This year GWP was celebrating its 15th Anniversary and our GWP Patron, His Royal Highness the Prince of Orange of the Netherlands, was present to close the meeting and to deliver the GWP Annual Lecture.
