The U.S. Water Partnership (USWP) continues to grow and mature with a sharpened focus on building a more water secure world. The USWP recently initiated the “American Leadership for a WaterSecure World” Campaign to build support and resources for the USWP mission. This Campaign is led by Dr. Madeleine K. Albright and General Colin Powell with support from a uniquely qualified National Executive Committee. More information on the Campaign’s leadership is available here.
Following a successful three-year incubation, the USWP is filing to be separate 501(c)(3) organization with leadership from a new Board of Directors. Initial Directors include Ambassador Lincoln Bloomfield, Ms. Monica Ellis and Mr. Tom Harvey. We encourage partners to continue to engage with guidance on program priorities and/or operational support through seconded staff, such as the in-kind, detailed staff support provided by World Vision, Millennium Challenge Corporation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Army Reserve and the U.S. State Department. The Board is continuing to consult with Steering Committee members who held their final official meeting on February 27, 2015 and will establish a formal consultative committee during the next six months to ensure ongoing input into USWP content development.
The USWP has grown from 28 partners to 107 partners, with the Atlantic Council joining as the 100th partner at an event on women, youth and water. A complete list of partners is available here. We would like to recognize and welcome the following new partners:
The USWP Secretariat is testing appropriate revenue and non-revenue membership levels to begin implementation in Q1 2016.
