Water Resources Network

The Water Resources Network is one of our longest standing technical networks, drawing together member expertise which ranges across the breadth of skills required to ensure sustainable water resources management, drawn from government, regulators, water companies, consultants, research organisations and others. To view CIWEM’s work in this area please visit the water resources page.

Terms of Reference

The Network’s terms of reference define water resources as “the study and control of the availability and quality of raw water with particular reference to the sustainable assessment, development and operation of the wider environment and issues such as supply/demand balance” and it is within these parameters that the Network operates.

The Water Resources Network contributes to our work in a number of key ways:

  • By assisting with the development of responses to consultation by government and other bodies
  • By developing and updating Policy Position Statements, briefings or detailed reports on issues relevant to the field of water resources
  • By developing programmes and assisting in finding speakers for conferences and symposia
  • By providing technical assistance when called upon in providing advice to members of the CIWEM, the public, media and decision makers
  • By developing new publications and providing material and articles for CIWEM’s magazine and Journal

Several Network members represent the Institution on forums and at events. The Network's Steering Group meets three times per year at CIWEM’s offices in London. Members communicate regularly via e-mail between meetings.
