Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Global Water Partnership (GWP)

GWP supports countries to realise the organization’s vision of a water secure world by helping them to advance their governance and management of water resources for sustainable and equitable development. GWP’s network of over 3,000 partners is broad and brings a strong brand in convening sound dialogue, with twenty years of history. Its 60+ country water partnerships bring strong relationships and have earned the trust of many in multi-stakeholder engagement. Its 13 regional water partnerships have taken on leadership roles in regional processes, south-to-south learning and cross-country coordination.

Estimated annual water and sanitation budget: $10-20 million USD
