About the Global Water Institute

In an era of ever-changing global environment and its challenges, the Global Water Institute (GWI) provides strategic insights on leadership in the promotion of a unique approach linking water related-programs and environmental security.

GWI is an international non-governmental organization providing water-related services for environment security and societal well-being and stability.

GWI mission is to assist post-conflict countries in environmental security and societal stability by training and working with ex-cpmbatants in the field of water resources.

GWI strives to remain the most highly valued institution for its pioneering and specialized action in the reintegration of ex-combatants through water related programs.

Founded in 2008 at the height of both the global water and global financial crises, GWI is dedicated to the simple but urgent goal of remediating the dual issue of global warming and unemployed demobilized and ex-combatants in post-conflict countries, by contributing to their reintegration and thereby enabling civilians to live peacefully while coping with the issue of water scarcity.

GWI conducts research and analysis and develops policy initiatives aiming at bringing peace and populations' stability. One of the GWI's mandates is to attract a large network of affiliated scholars focusing their expertise on water and sanitation, environmental protection, conflict prevention and peacebuilding, sustainable development, and environmental security and human stability.

While GWI programs have the ultimate goal of preventing social conflicts and consolidating regional peace by reintegrating demobilized individuals, it also calls upon democratic participation including deprived populations in its water-related programs.

GWI's core activities are made possible by the generous support of individuals and organizations' donors.

GWI does not take specific policy positions; accordingly, all views expressed in any publications on its website, should be understood to be solely those of the authors(s).
