GWP SA has evolved a comprehensive system of governance which provides a foundation for balanced and transparent decision-making. GWP SA’s governance structure include:
• The Country Water Partnerships
• The Regional Steering Committee
• The Regional Technical Committee
• The Secretariat
The roles and responsibilities of these structures and lines of communication and accountability across them are laid down in GWPSA’s Constitution. Along with its governance system, GWPSA has put in place management systems and operational procedures to support its programming efforts. Following GWPSA’s example, the 12 CWPs have been busy developing their own governance structures, management systems and operational procedures and crafting their own constitutions.
