The Stockholm International Water Institute, SIWI is a not-for-profit institute with a wide range of expertise in water governance – from sanitation and water resources management to water diplomacy. We create knowledge, develop capacity, and offer policy advice to countries, communities, and companies. SIWI works globally to change how water is understood, valued, and managed. As advocates and advisors, we show how improved water governance is key to a fairer, more prosperous, and resilient future.
SIWI has a department dedicated to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), including WASH in schools as one of its areas of expertise. SIWI also organizes the world’s leading water conference, World Water Week, and awards the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize. We also empower young people to solve water issues through the international competition Stockholm Junior Water Prize.
