Creating shared value through innovative partnerships

The SWPN contributes to efficient, equitable and sustainable water supply and access to water for all South Africans through the identification and application of innovative and cost-effective solutions.


The SWPN is hosted by the NEPAD Business Foundation


We would not have moved as fast in developing and implementing the‘No Drop’ project in such a short space of time without the SWPN. In fact, I doubt that this project would have happened at all.
