The UK Water Partnership is a private-public partnership bringing together industry, policymakers and the research community, with two primary goals:

  • To improve understanding, cooperation and coordination across the diverse water community, allowing the UK to respond more effectively to the challenges of global water security and the need for resilience in a changing environment
  • To more effectively deliver and implement research outputs and innovation, so that the UK wins a greater share of the global water market.

The partnership is currently focussing on producing/catalysing deliverables in the following areas:  water and cities (e.g. urban demonstrators and simulators), water and farming (e.g. integrated catchment management), a research and testing facilities register (pilot now available); flooding and drought (e.g. a commercial package on flood prevention for the global market) and a mentoring system for SMEs.
