Join the Alliance.

By becoming an AWS member, you join the local and global network of water stewards dedicated to a water secure world that enables people, cultures, business and the environment to prosper.

Our Members

Our members include businesses, peak bodies, not-for-profits, public sector agencies and individuals.

Why should we join?

You form the local AWS Asia-Pacific network and the global AWS International network

Members collaborate with other members, sharing a rich diversity of water stewardship experience and knowledge. Membership provides a platform for exchanging learning to tackle water-related challenges. It is this shared insight, born from the multi-stakeholder nature of AWS that gives us a strong, credible voice on water use and stewardship.

  • Priority access to local and global AWS Forums, events and working groups
  • Priority access to local and global networks, resources and tools

  • Governance of AWS Asia-Pacific through member-exclusive eligibility to nominate and vote for representation on the Asia-Pacific Board and Governance Committees
