Watershare is a worldwide network of water research organisations and utilities dedicated to delivering equitable water solutions for all. 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).
Water utilities, research organisations and solution providers all over the world face similar issues in the design and management of infrastructures for the provision of water. They deal with the same developments and needs – for example, demographic changes, climate issues, ageing assets, scarce resources, demands for more sustainable strategies and operations. But the knowledge produced is frequently fragmentary in nature and not accessible to all. In 2012, KWR Water Research Institute set up Watershare as a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing.
