Some of the world's most prominent research organisations have established an international water research alliance: the Global Water Research Coalition (GWRC).

 

The major challenges confronting the water industry across the world such as climate change, energy efficiency, sustainability and the protection of drinking water quality and therefore public health, are global in nature and transcend both national and continental boundaries. It is only through global collaboration that the water industry will be able to address these challenges.

 

The GWRC is a non-profit organisation that serves as the collaborative mechanism for water research.
