It’s Time for water solutions to last.
It’s Time to change the approach.
Creating dynamic change through collaborative connection.
The ways of working that brought us here today won’t take us where we want to go. W12+ Programs aims to connect, catalyse and incubate solutions for a water-secure future for everyone.
By working with locals on the ground, we can create solutions that meet the needs of local people.
By supporting the capacity of local organizations, those solutions will be maintained over the long term.
By incubating water solutions that were once too risky by paving the way for transformative water projects that can be replicated and scaled globally.
It’s Time impact looks different.
Bridging divides through partnership and universal access.
W12+ Programs create immediate actions that simultaneously serve as stepping stones to long-term solutions.
In South Sudan, W12+ Programs and Water for South Sudan partner together through the South Sudan Hub to design and run the Water Institute, the nation’s first training program to monitor drinking water quality. Some of the direct results of W12+ Programs, like the Water Institute, can be easily and readily seen. However, the impact of W12+ Programs – and any work related to development, water, or climate change – may take years to see.
W12+ Programs is focused on making a long-term impact for future generations for people, animals, plants, and all life on this planet. Research on the indirect impacts of improving water access and water quality show improved health, education, and economic outcomes, to name a few. Ultimately, whether quantitatively or qualitatively, water is inherently valuable.
