Organisation

SIWI have a flexible matrix organisation combining work areas with thematic structure, and organised to support the periodic formation of dedicated working groups tailor-made for each short- and long-term project and programme that we undertake. Team-based, multidisciplinary and flexible working arrangements are therefore hallmarks of our organisational culture.

SIWI is governed by a board combining experience from the public and private sector. The Prizes are governed by independent committees and administered by SIWI. For the World Water Week in Stockholm, a Scientific Programme Committee ensures that cutting-edge knowledge of the Week is upheld.

SIWI’s prime target audience is agents of change. These may be policy and decision makers on all levels, in charge of governance and management of resources and assets with an impact on availability, access and quality of water. They may also be an audience which has an impact on change agents, such as advisors, researchers and media workers.

For the last few years SIWI has been an organisation in growth. The demand for our knowledge services in particular has increased and we expect it to continue to do so during the strategy period. Our staff has increased during the last five year period from around 20 to over 50, reflecting the increasing demand for support to meet challenges faced by countries and organisations in managing their water resources.
