Note: This is a new agreement commencing in January 2023.
IWA Publishing publishes on behalf of the International Water Association, a global charity focussed on being the primary source of knowledge, experience and leadership for sustainable urban and basin-related water solutions. This is a mission that is critically important in a world where over 3 billion people still lack access to clean water and reliable sanitation. We publish a portfolio of 14 peer reviewed journals and 850 books, along with other information resources. Working in partnership with international agencies such as the World Health Organisation, our publications cover the entire spectrum of water related topics, including climate change, sanitation, clean drinking water, flood management and all aspects of technology as they relate to water.
