What are IWA Communities?
Spread across IWA’s membership in more than 140 countries, the IWA Communities reflect the breadth and depth of the water sector globally.
Specialist Groups are an exceptionally effective means of international networking, sharing information and skills, and making good professional and business contacts. Task Groups are formed in order to perform a defined task, such as producing IWA Scientific and Technical Reports, Manuals of Best Practice or Position Papers. Governing Members are IWA’s representatives in their respective countries and, through their membership in the Governing Assembly, are responsible for setting the Association’s broad policy. Young Water Professionals are the next generation of water professionals who will design, develop and implement future solutions to global water challenges.
IWA communities and their work are at the heart of the Association. It is through Specialist Groups, and their respective Task Groups and Clusters, that IWA members can contribute and participate in activities that shape our water future. Find out how you can get involved.
