Get involved in Programmes

We can’t do it alone. To advance or programme agendas for change, we need to engage with like-minded organisations, mobilise water professionals at large and collaborate with corporations.

There are a number of ways in which you and your organization can get involved in IWA programmes, including becoming a programme partner, donor or affiliate or contributing your knowledge and expertise. If you are a thought leader, or if the missions and values of your organization match ours, let’s explore how we can work together.

Programme Partners

Through its programmes, IWA partners with a variety of organiations to work together on a range of activities; including advocacy, projects, publications and events.

Become our Partner

Together, we combine our respective strengths and resources to make a contribution to a shared agenda. IWA’s global reach, convening power and network of water professionals are three significant attributes that IWA bring to its partnerships.
