Water law is a long-term strategy that drives the advancement of water security. Without innovation, without a scientific and data-like approach to law, our laws will not be responsive to real-time needs and demands.

actualizing the right to water

Human Right to Water (CWSC)

Without water, there is no life. Every person deserves a chance to pursue their dreams and provide for their family. Making sure each and every person has water is not a choice, it is a responsibility.

building cooperation

Water Coopertion (CWSC)

Partnerships drive innovation and promote cooperation and swift resolution of conflicts. We study transboundary relationships and build partnerships to faciliate dialogue, transparency and the development of practical solutions to complex challenges.

making law accessible

Accessibility of Law (CWSC)

We want citizens to be informed and engaged on water issues. But that means information must be openly available and presented in a clear, straightforward way.

our initiatives

In partnership with in-country universities, nonprofits, and law firms, we are creating the first pan-African water law platform. Creating RENEWAL will allow citizens and stakeholders to determine whether and how effectively their laws and policies are advancing water security and will enable collaboration and innovation in law.

What does it take to achieve water security? Through our Water Security Challenge we are developing a practical, results-oriented strategy that can help guide countries create an enabling environment for water security. This strategy will identify what is necessary to achieve water security and measures for determining success.
