The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) is a global multi-stakeholder organisation comprising businesses, government and non-government organisations. Our members unite under our mission to protect and enhance the sustainability of water resources through water stewardship.
The AWS approach to water stewardship is embodied in the International Water Stewardship Standard, also known as the AWS Standard. The AWS Standard is a globally applicable framework that drives, recognises, and rewards good water management practices. As the custodian of the AWS Standard, AWS oversees the governance and management of the AWS Standard and its quality assurance systems.
AWS Asia-Pacific is a founding member and regional partner of AWS. AWS Asia-Pacific leads the development of water stewardship in the region by training, advising, and supporting organisations in implementing water stewardship. Our staff are based in Australia, China and Indonesia.
We are establishing a full-fledged Indonesian entity and building our in-country project portfolio as part of the regional network. We aim to develop in-country water stewardship capacity to promote uptake of good water stewardship in Indonesia through continued engagement with the private sector, public sector and civil society.
