Our Mission and Vision


Our work is founded on the principle that clean, accessible, affordable water is a human right.

We support communities in meeting their critical water challenges by identifying resilient and sustainable solutions, combining natural and built systems, and based on equitable principles that reflect community voices.

We support the development of future water leaders in these communities and the larger water sector so that water decision-makers reflect the communities they serve, continue working in the water-sector field, and have a network to support them to advance their leadership skills.



To be a global water research and policy hub based on community, equity, science, resilience, and justice values.
