We represent and support a community of thousands of members globally, dedicated to improving water and environmental management and associated social and cultural issues.

As an independent charity we champion professional standards, impartiality and the use of scientific evidence in the management of the environment. The public benefits of these activities are:

  • Qualified professional water and environmental managers.
  • Development and promotion of the highest standards of professional expertise and conduct.
  • Protection of the public from pollution, environmental destruction and natural hazards by our members.
  • Application of scientific rigour to ensure the best outcomes for society now and in the future.

Our International Task Group coordinates our work on sustainable development and the SDGs, chaired by CIWEM President Bruce Keith.
