SIWI is a world-leading expert in water governance. We support and catalyze change, championing water solutions for a just, prosperous, and sustainable future. A water-wise world, where the potential of improved water governance is truly fulfilled, is not something we can achieve in isolation – it requires close collaboration with a broad range of actors. 

We therefore partner with governments, institutions, UN bodies, organizations and companies who share our commitment. The spirit of collaboration and co-creation cuts across all our projects and programmes, and we consider it to be a prerequisite for sustainable change on a global scale.

Together with our partners, we create solutions, organize activities, and raise awareness about the importance of good water governance. We work to influence the international policy debate and to provide water solutions that help decision-makers tackle some of the greatest and most urgent challenges of our time.

We have a global presence, we host leading platforms on key water issues, and we organize the influential World Water Week every year. We value and rely on our partners’ contributions, ideas, funding, knowledge, and networks. By collaborating, we have the means to elevate efficient water governance and pave the way for a sustainable and water-wise future.
