Regions

The Water Action Hub maps information on partnerships and collective action on water resource management across a number of regions around the world. Currently, over 170 projects are profiled in over 350 locations around the world from Latin America to Africa and Asia.  

Below, the Hub profiles unique, in-depth regional profiles that feature information about organizations that have expressed interest in collaborating with others and specific water challenges reported by Hub users in those regions. 

The profiles also provide up-to-date region-specific news, information about local regional authorities, planning documents and links to basin level water stewardship tools. This provides the necessary tools to understand local challenges and priorities, and the organizations and projects with whom users can engage to meet water-related objectives.

Additional regions will be added in the coming year, so please check back often for updates. For a complete list of projects beyond those listed in these basins, we encourage you to explore the Projects
