The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
Seven major international organisations including the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) have announced a multimillion-dollar partnership to address declining supplies of fresh water and the lack of access to clean water by the world's poorest people.
