The Australian Water Partnership: Pacific Region

We are putting a spotlight on the Australian Water Partnership’s 2022-23 achievements across the Pacific region

“The Australian Water Partnership continues to go from strength to strength in development programming, sharing knowledge and brokering partnership, and continues to advocate for sustainable and climate responsible water resource management to reduce poverty in our region,” Michael Wilson, Group CEO, eWater Group

We continue our spotlight on our divisions particularly the Australian Water Partnership as part of our latest annual report and their achievements in the Pacific community.

The Australian Water Partnership delivers international water development programs on behalf of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade together with a network of 240 Australian partners.

In 2022-23, the AWP team supported DFAT to achieve:

🌏 Papua New Guinea: Partnering with WaterAid Australia, AWP supported the development and integration of an inclusive Monitoring Information System which focuses on water scarcity, water security, climate resilient and GEDSI activities. The activity included a focus on community based WRM and WASH which was designed and rolled out in collaboration with the East Sepik Council of Women and East Sepik Disabled Person’s Agency to deliver community engagement sessions on inclusive water resource management.

🌏Partnerships for a Resilient and Climate-Smart Water Sector – Pacific and Southeast Asia – Pacific and Southeast Asia: Utility ‘twins’ were facilitated by the Australian Water Association, to build people-to-people partnerships across five countries and established relationships between AWA and other water associations in Indonesia, Solomon Islands and Vietnam.

We acknowledge and thank the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Australian Water Partnership, WaterAid Australia,  East Sepik Council of Women, East Sepik Disabled Person’s Agency, and the Australian Water Association.
