The Global Water Initiative works to improve water management policies, research, investment and knowledge resources for sustainable agricultural production and improved food security.

We advocate globally and support specific action research in Central AmericaEast Africa and West Africa. We bring together complementary resources and expertise from our partner organizations including CARE, CRS, IIED and IUCN, and work in collaboration with governments and local stakeholders in the regions we work.

Our principles:

  • Maintaining or improving water quality while conserving its use as a limited resource.
  • Developing and promoting sustainable agriculture systems, while improving knowledge and social learning.
  • Empowering small farmers – especially women – while improving human well-being and fostering sustainable livelihoods.

How we implement change:

  • GWI believes that evidence, empowerment, and learning are essential elements in delivering efficient, effective and equitable solutions for achieving food and water security.
  • A revitalized smallholder rain-fed sector is critical for food security and water resource management. Change at scale requires leadership and investment by both the public and private sectors.
  • Stimulating and promoting understanding of how enabling environments and/or incentives for investments by small-scale farmers are critically important.  Jumpstarting responsible investments in agriculture and water management systems will positively impact smallholder farmers as well as contribute to food and water security on a wider scale.
