Welcome to Water Governance Facility

The Water Governance Facility (WGF) is a collaboration between the UNDP and SIWI. The WGF implements parts of the UNDP Water and Ocean Governance Programme by providing strategic water governance support to low- and middle-income countries to advance socially equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically efficient management of water resources and water and sanitation services. The ultimate aim is to improve lives and livelihoods and reduce poverty, inequalities and exclusion.

We work on knowledge and capacity development related to multiple thematic areas, including integrated water resources management, transboundary waters, water supply and sanitation, gender equality, water integrity and climate change adaptation.

WGF Programmes

We contribute to international  processes, implement projects, and enhance the water governance knowledge base through:
