The GWRC is a network organisation with selected members and partners. The coordination of the GWRC is undertaken by the Managing Director.

Most of the research activities are undertaken and coordinated by staff of the GWRC members.


Our Vision

The GWRC is the platform for global cooperation for the exchange and generation of water knowledge.


Our Mission

To maintain a strong partnership between world leading water research organisations to generate, exchange and communicate knowledge through research collaborations to support safe and sustainable water supply and sanitation for the protection of public health and the aquatic environment.


The GWRC is providing benefit to their members and partners by:

A governing board oversees the GWRC. Each member organisation will have a seat on the governing board, providing equal and impartial input.


The Global Water Research Coalition is affiliated with the International Water Association (IWA) and makes use of IWA expertise and support facilities.
