Global Water Partnership
The Global Water Partnership's vision is for a water secure world. Its mission is to support the sustainable development and management of water resources at all levels.
GWP was founded in 1996 to foster integrated water resource management (IWRM).
IWRM is a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources in order to maximize economic and social welfare without compromising the sustainability of ecosystems and the environment.
The network is open to all organizations involved in water resources management: developed and developing country government institutions, agencies of the United Nations, bi- and multi-lateral development banks, professional associations, research institutions, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.
