Since 2003, with over 130 participating organisations
The International Network on Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage (HWTS Network) is a World Health Organization and United Nations Children's Fund initiative bringing together over 130 key stakeholders worldwide to promote and scale up the adoption of practices and technologies that improve the quality of household drinking water for vulnerable populations. The informal network format emphasizes flexibility, participation and creativity to support coordinated action.
Hosted and guided by WHO and UNICEF, participants include UN agencies, development agencies, non-governmental organizations, research institutions, international professional associations and the private sector. Participation is open to all interested parties that agree with the Network mission and guiding principles and who are willing to commit themselves to working toward achieving the objectives of the Network.
The Water Institute at UNC provides general communications-related support for the Network and is the delegated point of contact for prospective and existing participants. If your organization is interested in getting involved, please contact us.Ryan Rowe
