International Water Centre

The International WaterCentre (IWC) provides education and training, applied research and knowledge services to implement a whole-of-water cycle approach and develop capacity in integrated water resource management.

Our key focus areas are:

  • Sustainable urban communities
  • Healthy river basins
  • Water, sanitation and hygiene

International Women’s Development Agency

IWDA is the leading Australian agency entirely focussed on women’s rights and gender equality in the Asia Pacific region. We are international, feminist and independent.

IWDA’s vision is for a world where every woman and man, girl and boy has equal rights and opportunities. IWDA partners with others in the Asia Pacific region to advance women’s human rights. We stand up for women and girls by tackling issues of power, money and security.

Our values:

  • Feminist – Women and men should have equal rights and opportunities. Women make up half the world yet face persistent discrimination. When a woman owns her human rights, she can change the world for herself and the women around her.

  • Accountable – Clear, open and honest approaches give strength to our accomplishments. We invite dialogue about our work from everyone involved.

  • Collaborative – Participation is a right. Women are stronger together, and local knowledge drives long-term solutions.

  • Transformative – With full access to their rights, women have the potential to transform the world. By tackling issues of power, money and security we can hold governments and decision-makers accountable and transform the root causes of gender inequality.
