SIWI new host for the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation secretariat

Nov 07, 2014

As of this fall SIWI hosts the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) secretariat and together with the World Bank chairs the steering committee.

AGWA is an informal network established to bridge policy and field based activities. The network provides tools, partnerships and technical assistance to improve decision making in water resources management, focusing on climate change adaptation.

SIWI has a long standing involvement in AGWA and coordinates the network’s policy group, which consists of like-minded organisations and particularly engages in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
