  About WaterWeb Consortium  

The WaterWeb consortium has been created to promote the sharing of information concerning water and the earth’s environment. Our organization seeks to create a global community, bringing together educational, governmental, nonprofit, & commercial entities interested in water research, conservation, and management. WaterWeb’s goals are to advance water related issues, promote the use of quality information, and share information with water use stakeholders and decision makers.

The organization has a global focus with initial participants from North, Central & South America and Europe. The WaterWeb is built on the premise of improving communications and information access to help address the world’s water problems. WaterWeb.org and the WaterWeb ring are the first forms of the group's collaboration. As the organization grows and matures other products and collaboration methods will be introduced. The consortium invites all sites seeking to share useful, quality information on water and the environment to join the WaterWeb ring.
