U.S. Water Partnership

Around the world, challenges surrounding access to, and use of, water resources affect millions of people daily. Decision makers in the global water sector are challenged by limited capacity and access to actionable data and information on complex issues and competing demands for water resources. The U.S. Water Partnership recognizes that the United States has much to contribute to solving global water challenges, from water information and resources to experts spread throughout government agencies, the private sector, NGOs and academic research institutions. Until now, there has not been a single platform for uniting and mobilizing this expertise. While individual solutions to water challenges are being scaled up, integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions will result in more long-term value for both the U.S water sector and the international community.
