Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA)



The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA), hosted by Conservation International (CI) and the World Bank, focuses on catalyzing information, institutions, and action around climate adaptation to promote a new vision of sustainable development, despite uncertain freshwater futures. AGWA’s main objectives are to assist government, non-governmental, and private sector institutions in adapting to climate change impacts by closing the gaps between pools of expertise, creating a policy landscape that fosters adaptation success, and translating best practices into operational reality.  It is positioned both to communicate as a cohesive group to other networks and institutions and to act within the AWGA network.
