A sustainable approach to water management

A sustainable approach to water management


Our planet’s water resources are under increasing pressure. To address water scarcity and the deterioration of our waterways requires a different approach to water management. Join the International WaterCentre for the four-week Foundations of Water Stewardship online training and and learn the skills and tools you need to tackle water challenges sustainably.

The AWS has developed a modular training program setting the standard for water stewardship globally. The program is designed to support, recognise and reward collaborative efforts to manage shared water challenges. As a verified corporate delivery team, the International WaterCentre is pleased to offer ‘Foundations of Water Stewardship,’ the first level of the program for users and promoters of the AWS water stewardship system.

Why water stewardship?

Water stewardship offers a new approach to achieving water management outcomes that are socially equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial. Through our online training, Water Stewards have the capacity to better:

  • Mitigate current and future water risks
  • Identify, prioritise and address on-site and off-site shared water challenges
  • Deliver site and catchment based actions that maximise positive impacts for all stakeholders
  • Undertake engagement and communication with key stakeholders.
