Mission and Vision
Watershare is a worldwide network of water research organisations and utilities that delivers equitable water solutions. We bridge research to practice on pressing water sector issues through global-to-local collaboration.
The Watershare vision is to share knowledge, expertise, and resources between global researchers, utilities, and solution providers to collaborate and implement innovations for a resilient water future and contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6).
Watershare addresses local water challenges through global collaboration and knowledge sharing for a resilient water future for all.
Watershare promotes collaboration and sharing of knowledge, expertise, and resources to address challenges faster and smarter.
Watershare strengthens the role of academia in research and development to advance sustainable water management knowledge for a resilient water future.
Research, Knowledge and Solution Providers
Watershare collaborates with research, knowledge and solution providers to bridge research to practice by translating technology and expertise into practical solutions.
Watershare collaborates with utilities in applying innovations to secure a safe and reliable water supply.
The Watershare vision is to share knowledge, expertise and resources between global researchers, utilities, and solution providers to collaborate and implement innovations for a resilient water future and contribute to achieving SDG 6.
Water utilities, research organisations and solution providers worldwide face similar issues in the design and management of infrastructures for the provision of water. They deal with the same developments and needs (e.g., demographic changes, climate issues, ageing assets, scarce resources), demanding for more more sustainable strategies and operations. The knowledge produced is frequently incomplete, decentralised or not accessible to all.
In 2012, KWR Water Research Institute set up Watershare as a collaboration and knowledge-sharing platform.
The Watershare network
Watershare is an international network of water utilities, research organisations, and solution providers committed to sharing knowledge, expertise and resources. Partners collaborate and implement innovations for a resilient water future and contribute to achieving SDG 6.
Watershare currently has over 20 engaged partners and 5 regional hubs for local and regional knowledge building and sharing.
