We are excited to announce that you can now apply for joint membership with the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the International Water Association (IWA).
This is an exciting global venture which brings benefits to members of both organisations, as well as a growth in the number of international development opportunities. Together we have presence in over 70% of the world’s countries.
Members of both organisations will be able to work towards CIWEM’s unique Water and Environmental Management Chartership (C.WEM) and professional registrations in engineering, science and environment, and also enjoy privileged access to IWA’s communities of expertise and practice, specialised content and tailored professional development programme to gain a stronger position in the water and environmental sectors.
This partnership works to contribute towards Sustainable Development Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. We need to increase the number of water and environment professionals in the world in order to help meet this goal.
Terry Fuller, CIWEM Chief Executive said,
“This collaboration expands the breadth and depth of our global community of individuals and organisational partners. It creates unrivalled opportunities for the professional growth of our members by learning from, and contributing to, innovation in the water and environmental sectors. Our business and academic partners will also benefit from increased exposure of their organisations to those that they most wish to form a relationship with.”
Kalanithy Vairavamoorthy, IWA Executive Director said,
“Successful water management is key for reaching the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, with water being the core element for all 17 goals. To achieve this, water professionals of all shapes and shades are needed to provide solutions to the water problems the world is facing. With the IWA membership dedicated to work with the full water cycle and coming from all fields of professions, they are engaged to pioneering technologies, to research and implementation. We strongly believe that partnership and collaboration is critical here, it is strongly supporting our sector and beyond.”
