Values and Principles

WaterLex has four main differentiating values and principles:


We are driven to achieve impact through objective analysis and high quality research


We aim to make concrete recommendations based on a well-researched picture of country legal and policy contexts, tailored to have a greater chance of success.


We recognise that impact can be achieved more quickly and efficiently through partnerships, working with like-minded players with a vision to contribute to water and sanitation governance.

Neutral and independent:

We are an expert organisation that does not represent a particular stakeholder group or local population.
