Twinning program

Our Twinning program pairs Riverprize winners with communities who can benefit from their knowledge and expertise in sustainable river management, improving management of, access to and quality of water globally. It focuses on long-term, peer-to-peer relationships between organisations and communities at the local level. The program has an extraordinary impact on people and communities around the world, with one project alone providing education and access to clean water for more than 10,000 people in three villages in rural Kenya.


Twinning is a critical component of our work to replicate best practice river basin management. In addition to river basin management, Twinning has achieved outcomes in community development, education and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Health).
