These entities typically include States, national, regional and local Government Institutions, Intergovernmental Organizations, international and national Non-governmental Organizations, Academic Institutions and Research Institutions, Companies, service providers in the public sector, or any such entity which recognizes the principles of integrated water resources management endorsed by the Network and is committed to these principles (as outlined in the application to be a Partner).
Institutions who are willing to become a partner need be based in the SADC region or working actively and regularly on water issues in the SADC region even if their headquarters are outside the region.
All of the Partners of our Network need to be committed to:
- Co-ordinating its relevant activities with those of other concerned organizations;
- Sharing both information and experience freely with the other Partners;
- Giving advice and professional contributions to the Network, the Organization and to other Partners, on such conditions as may be agreed free of charge up to a reasonable level and at a mutually agreed charge above that level.

- provide guidance on identifying critical needs;
- have an opportunity to match one Partner's needs with another Partner's resources;
