Water insecurity is increasing worldwide. In response to these threats the Water, Peace and Security partnership develops innovative tools and services that help identify water-related security risks, and allow stakeholders to TAKE ACTION at an early stage.

Act: Tool Dock

Our process depends on global data collection and validation, and on understanding how water shortage can translate into social consequences locally. Our participatory approach understands that dialogue between different parties is crucial to solving conflict, increases joint understanding of the water system, and broadens the scope of actions that can be taken.

WPS Goals

"Through the WPS partnership we hope to prevent conflicts over water by enabling communities to take action at an early stage."

Carola van Rijnsoever, Dutch Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Crucial data

"Data is fundamental to understanding where the risks are highest, what’s driving these risks, and they suggest what possible solutions might be, in order to mitigate these risks."

Charles Iceland, World Resources Institute

Solving conflict

"It’s important to know why conflict is happening, what the role of water is, and what factors you can influence either as a policy maker in the respective region, or as an external partner, to solve the conflict"

Susanne Schmeier, IHE Delft
