Global Water Partnership Southern Africa currently has 14 Country Water Partnerships (CWPs) that provide a neutral, multi-stakeholder platform for facilitating improvements in the way water resources are managed in the region. Listed to the right are the CWPs in Southern Africa.
A GWP Country Water Partnership (CWP) is made up of the GWP Partners in a country. Being a Partner in a country makes it eligible to participate in network meetings, whether at country, regional, or global level. GWP Partner representatives may be members of a country Steering Committee (or equivalent).
The operation of each CWP is based on GWP's Conditions for Accreditation for CWPs, and guided by Statutes agreed by Partners in the country and approved by GWPO (the global secretariat in Stockholm).
