|Description||Our work covers a number of areas related to climate change adaptation: science, policy, economics, engineering, and more. AGWA is focused on how to help experts, decision makers, and institutions in the water community work more effectively. We want to work with you, through and across our network.|
|Objectives|| Mission: The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) is established to provision tools, partnerships, guidance, and technical assistance to improve effective decision making, action, governance, and analytical processes in water resources management, focusing on climate adaptation and mitigation.
Vision: Effective climate change adaptation and mitigation practices are mainstreamed and enabled within water resources management decision-making processes, policies, and implementation.
|Activities||One of the main areas of emphasis for AGWA’s efforts is providing technical guidance for water resources planners, managers, and engineers to implement robust water management. We do this in a number of ways, ranging from on-the-ground projects to technical documents and guidelines. AGWA’s technical projects focus on investment strategies, risk assessment and risk reduction, governance and implementation, and finance. Technical work is driven by the mission of AGWA's Charter and informed by a flexible set of directions known as AGWA's Guiding Elements. Below you can learn more about ongoing projects conducted by AGWA and members of its network.|
