The SIWI partner network

The SIWI partner network


It will take many great minds and helping hands, across disciplines and regions, to realize a water wise world for all. Both public and private water decision-makers and users play an important role in the identification and implementation of innovative, sustainable, water wise solutions.

We collaborate with a range of different organizations and sectors, in different ways, to work towards this vision.

Core Support

SIWI is one of the world’s leading water institutes. We receive core funding from the Swedish International Cooperation Development Agency (Sida) to support work towards our shared goals to alleviate poverty, support economic growth in developing countries and reduce the impact of climate change globally.

World Water Week is funded by SIWI, registration fees, event fees and strategic partnerships.


Strategic Partners

SIWI works with governments, international organizations and the private sector to bridge policy with practice. While project scopes vary, they often consist of a combination of research, policy advice, project management, capacity building, and advocacy to support decision-makers and water-users with evidence-based, water wise information.
