Mission & goals

The core development goal for the AWP is to enhance the sustainable management of water resources in the Indo-Pacific region, in turn supporting inclusive economic development, improvements to water security for all, and reductions in environmental and social impacts and regional tensions.

We will build an open, effective and enduring partnership that facilitates and supports:

  • strategic, long-term engagement of the Australian water sector with governments in the region, multi-lateral development organisations, water sector institutions, water use industries, and civil society
  • sharing between Australian and international partners of water reform experiences, expertise and technologies to underpin sustainable water use and management, and
  • enhanced capability and capacity to deliver effective and equitable water security outcomes, enhancement of private sector development and trade outcomes in water-related industries
