About the Grant
The SIWI Journalist Grant aims to build capacity in water and water-related issues among journalists active in developing countries, thereby creating potential for raised awareness among large audiences of readers, listeners and viewers. In the long term, a raised level of water knowledge in the journalist corps will contribute to influencing key decision- and policy makers in water and development issues.
We hope that journalists leave World Water Week with a renewed passion for water issues, as well as the ability to carry forward relevant ideas for their communities that raise awareness and galvanize civic engagement.
