What we do

World Waternet supports public water organisations through peer-to-peer knowledge exchange in water cycle management. We do this through long-term Water Operators’ Partnerships with water organisations in more than 15 countries in Africa, Asia and South America to strengthen capacity, improve performance and enable them to provide a better service to more people
In addition, we exchange knowledge with leading water organisations in our Knowledge Partnerships. We aim to intensify exchange and collaboration on topics related to Waternet's six (6) Research & Innovation topics; climate adaptation, energy transition, water quality & technology, circular economy, soil subsidence, and data & sensoring. This allows us to tackle the same challenges together.            


Sustainable Development Goals

We are fully committed to the Sustainable Development Goals () (SDGs) of the United Nations. Local water and sanitation service providers are key to the SDGs. Through our partnerships with local water and sanitation service providers, we contribute to the following SDG's.


Water Operators' Partnerships

Water Operators' Partnerships are peer-support partnerships between water organisations. World Waternet partners with other public water organisations to improve the operational performance in water cycle management. Within our partnerships, we fully embrace and work by GWOPA's Guiding WOP principles (). What makes our partnerships unique:


Operational Excellence of water organisations
