Are you passionate about water and development? Have you covered these topics in your work but want a chance to see more, learn more and interview major actors in the water community?

Through the World Water Week Journalist Grant, SIWI offers journalists from low or low-middle income nations the opportunity to visit Stockholm and report on the World Water Week – the leading global conference to discuss water and development issues.



Reporters from Kenya, Pakistan and Vietnam winners of World Water Week 2017 Journalist Grant

Close to a hundred journalists sought the opportunity to report from World Water Week with SIWI’s Journalist Grant this year. Several weeks of reading, listening to, and watching impressive stories on water and water-related issues led to the selection of three highly qualified reporters for this year’s Grant.

Sylvia Chebet from Kenya, Farahnaz Zahidi from Pakistan and Nhat Pham from Vietnam all show a deep interest in water and water-related issues, and prove that journalism can be used as a tool for positive change.

We welcome them to Stockholm and World Water Week!
