Global Water Research Coalition


Some of the world’s most reputable and leading research organisations have established an international water research alliance: the Global Water Research Coalition.

The major challenges confronting the water industry across the world such as climate change, energy efficiency, sustainability and the protection of drinking water quality and therefore public health, are global in nature and transcend both national and continental boundaries. It is only through global collaboration that the water industry will be able to address these challenges.

The GWRC serves as a clearinghouse for dissemination of international water quality research. In this way, the GWRC provides sound scientific and technical information to individual members, stakeholders and policy makers, serving as a forum for international regulatory proposals. With and through its members, the GWRC helps advance the understanding of consumers, regulators and policy makers on critical issues.

The Global Water Research Coalition (GWRC) is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2002 and serving as a collaborative mechanism for water research. GWRC is partner of IWA.
