No one organization can solve the global water crisis on its own. Because of this, open-handed knowledge sharing and thought leadership is a priority for Water Mission. To catalyze this effort, we launched and now partner with the Global Water Center (GWC) to convene, train, and resource organizations and governments around strategies and standards for water projects. We also resource the West and Central Africa Region (WCAR) Solar Hub to provide technical assistance to United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), governments, and others implementing solar-powered water systems in the region.
