International Water Association

The mission of the International Water Association (IWA) is to act as a professional knowledge base and a global compass for the members of the Association committed to water issues, professional communities, opinion leaders and external organisations on issues ranging from sustainable urban water management to the development of water supply systems.


Through its national and regional level member organisations, the Association implements development projects. As a central activity, the Association organises conferences and issues professional publications to assist the water management profession, and creates a platform for specialists and decision-makers in the water management field to share their experiences, latest research results and best practices with each other through the IWA Connect Network.
