ALEXANDRIA, VA.—The Water Environment Federation (WEF) announced a new partnership with the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), an international group of like-minded organizations that promotes responsible use of water resources. WEF will provide a utility perspective and other water sector input in the development of global watershed certification and international water stewardship standards during the next three years. In addition, WEF will assist in efforts to secure funding for the AWS via cooperative agreements with agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other institutions.

Formed to provide a global platform for the development of standards for water stewardship that will enable fair and sustainable management of freshwater resources, current AWS partners include The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, Pacific Institute, Watershed Stewardship Initiative, and Water Witness.
