GWP Network Meeting 2021 - Please Join Us!

The 2021 edition of GWP's annual Network Meeting of Partners will take place online on 1-2 December, under the theme ‘Leading Change and Innovation through our Partners.’

Last year’s annual Networking Meeting of Partners involved over 500 participants, from more than 70 countries, who offered up innovative solutions to water challenges. Will you join us this year?

This is your opportunity to engage directly with other GWP Partners and with your GWP regional and global peers.

You will also have the chance to take a virtual tour of our exciting new GWP ToolBox – IWRM Action Hub during the event! This new innovative resource is an accomplishment to mark our  25th Anniversary, which we will celebrate during the Opening Session. 


The format has no region-specific sessions. All sessions are open to all regions, and you can join whenever it fits your schedule and time zone. Interpretation will be available in the plenary sessions (languages: Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese) and, depending on demand, in the Breakout Groups (two of the Breakout Groups will be interpreted in all languages, see below which ones and when) .

The Network Meeting consists of ten sessions run over two days (1–2 December). Some of the sessions are on the same topic, but on different days, to allow for different regions/time zones to participate.


  1. From source to sea: Healthy rivers, healthy oceans (interpretation available: Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese on Day 2)
  2. Daring to lead: Youth and Women in water
  3. Investing for change: Water and climate financing  (interpretation available: Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese on Day 1)
