Sound water governance is a cornerstone of any sustainable form of economic development. In the pursuit of excellence in good governance and integrated water resources management we work with our network and regional experts to identify good practices in water management, as well as new technologies and efficiencies. We then share this water intelligence across our network to support water alignment at national, regional and global levels.
We use our unique global network of water actors to harvest knowledge on the state of water governance and integrated water resources management across the world.
