Our impact focuses on empowering water professionals to develop the skills, knowledge and networks they need to tackle complex water management challenges using whole-of-water cycle approaches to Integrated Water Management around the world.
Since 2005 we have developed a global network of over 1,000 water practitioners who remain connected through the IWC Alumni Network (IWCAN).
Our students and Alumni are a diverse group of water professionals from over 84 countries around the world.
They join us through our Master of Integrated Water Management Program, Water Leadership Program, and customised and online training courses.
Bringing a wealth of cultural and professional experience, IWC Alumni have one thing in common – a desire to solve the world’s most challenging water problems for the environment, for communities and the economy.
Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires a shift in how the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector currently works.
A greater focus on strengthening local capacity to sustainably deliver WASH services is required and organisations need to acquire new and more diverse skills in order to assess and address sector gaps through co-designed, evidence-based programs.
Our research activities address current and emerging water challenges to influence water management, policy, education and leadership.
Our research is empirical, problem-based and generates useful knowledge to support the delivery of more effective programming, build sector capacity, and contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of communities, the environment and economies.
