Global Water Partnership Zambia


Zambia Water Partnership (ZWP) was established in 2000 as a network of Zambian-based institutions that are registered as partners with the GWP Organization (GWPO) in Sweden. Currently, there are more than 60 such Country Partners (CPs) in Zambia from various sectors which include Agriculture, Environment, Water Resources, Water Supply and Sanitation, and Academia. Other sectors that are represented in the ZWP include Media, Tourism, Community Development, and Youth.

Zambia is located in Southern Africa, therefore ZWP is affiliated with the Global Water Partnership Southern Africa (GWPSA) regional office, and operates under its auspices and guidance.

ZWP and its Interim Secretariat are hosted by the National Water Supply and Sanitation Council (NWASCO) in Lusaka, Zambia.


ZWP’s main goal is to promote and support, by working with mandated institutions, national-level socio-economic development for Zambia, through the coordinated development and management of water, land, forests, wetlands, and human resources.

ZWP seeks to promote climate change adaptation, mitigation and resilience, and gender equity in water resources management and development, again by working through and with mandated institutions in Zambia.
