Partnerships and innovation lie at the heart of development cooperation for water and sanitation. 

To leverage knowledge and facilitate innovative solutions that can contribute to achieve universal access to water, GWS strengthens decentralised cooperation partnerships and banks on innovative practices, both in water and sanitation interventions and in fundraising, combining long-term perspectives and processes with short-term actions.

In order to achieve the right to safe drinking water and sanitation, GWS, through its three fields of action, simultaneously contributes to:

  • ensuring political will through advocacy,
  • creating the right policy environment by fostering alignment and donor coordination,
  • identifying, mapping and mobilizing the necessary financial and technical resources.
