The Portuguese Water Partnership’s mission is to promote an effective link between professionals, institutions and companies in order to project the knowledge and skills of the Portuguese water sector in the world, and to catalyse opportunities in international markets and in the area of cooperation within the framework of the development of sustainable projects in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.


PWP, which has 140 member organizations, intends to bring together the efforts of the four essential components of the water sector: companies, ranging from design to management, including equipment suppliers and construction contractors; universities and research centers, where the knowledge that is at the basis of the value chain is generated and transmitted; professional associations, that have been contributing to consolidate and give identity to the sector and public administration institutions that are part of the “Portuguese model” or play a key role in its internationalization.
