The Water Youth Network is a global connector in the water sector, made up of a community of students and young professionals and across disciplines. The Water Youth Network is neither an implementation organization nor a fund, but rather an organization that encourages and enables the connection of young individuals and organizations within and beyond the water sector. It has a strong focus on water diplomacy and transboundary issues under the main theme of cooperation. In order to ensure the sustainability of cooperative efforts, there is the need to invest in regional youth networks and the capacity of both young people and institutions to take this work forward. These would then culminate in the project on water diplomacy and transboundary issues. As a result, we have developed an adapted framework composed of four key phases: YouKnoWplatform, Capacity building, Institutionalization and Scaling-up.
