CPWF Partnership Approach
Partnerships are a guiding principle for CPWF. It believes that partnerships are a key aspect of the research-for-development process because it is through these partnerships that research expands. Research won’t be relevant, nor research outputs put to use, without partnership. Research is carried out in partnership with strategic actors at different levels who will be able to influence, change and carry on the work once CPWF ends.
As part of this, CPWF strengthens network at different levels to enable fast and high quality learning and innovation. Network mapping is a central element of how projects and Basin Development Challenges are developed. The network maps are used define how our partners will be working to together and where different influential organization and groups are placed and how we might best be able to influence them.

Partners are classified into the following categories:
