We facilitate and help sustain partnerships that can elevate the impact of water management activities.

A collaborative approach to enable enduring change.

Genuine partnerships are crucial to effectively addressing the water management needs of countries throughout the Indo-Pacific.

AWP’s role is to be a supportive and trusted partner in the delivery of activities—and also to facilitate and help sustain partnerships that can elevate the impact of water management activities.

Our partnership values

To AWP, a partner is not just a person or organisation we are involved with. We recognise that an authentic partnership is very different to an advisory or consultancy relationship, and this principle is evident from our strategic planning through to our daily communication.

Our partnerships, and those we help broker, are always based on:

Our ‘Water for Development’ Community

To achieve greater impact, it’s important that partnership learnings and lessons are communicated back to our community.

Our Australian Partners, our Indo-Pacific Partners and our International Allies all make up our ‘Water for Development’ Community. This community is provided with opportunities to share, collaborate and engage, while also consuming important knowledge and learnings shared by others.

We foster our Water for Development community by facilitating face-to-face events, online activities, forums and networking opportunities, and by providing access to webinars, publications, case studies and other useful resources.

Australian Partners

Australia has valuable expertise in managing water scarcity, drought and floods. Our water community is known globally for its resilience to harsh climatic conditions, and for engaging communities in complex water reform that balances the many values of water.

Our role in facilitating connections between Australian and Indo-Pacific partners enables two-way knowledge exchange and learning. The involvement of Australian partners can provide an opportunity for Indo-Pacific partners to share challenges and collectively identify solutions. At the same time, there is a concerted effort and recognition that local context and know-how is essential to achieve longer term impact.

Our Australian Partners include public and private organisations and businesses with a wide range of expertise within the field of water resources management. By partnering with AWP, Australian Partners have a mechanism for sharing their knowledge and expertise—including valuable First Nations knowledge—across the Indo-Pacific.

Collaboration and co-design with Indo-Pacific Partners is crucial to ensure we align effectively with each country’s unique needs, challenges and existing governance arrangements. Furthermore, local context and know-how is essential to achieve longer term impact.
