SIWI is a flexible matrix organization that combines work areas with thematic structure, and is organized to support the periodic formation of dedicated working groups tailor-made for each short- and long-term project and programme that we undertake.


SIWI is a Swedish, independent, not-for-profit foundation, which seeks to strengthen the governance of fresh water globally, regionally, nationally, and locally. It 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 World Water Week, a Scientific Programme Committee ensures that cutting-edge knowledge of the Week is upheld.

For the last few years SIWI has been an organization 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. Please navigate on the left to see the SIWI team.
