The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) with member organizations like Deltares and Conservation International, propose building explicit approaches for including ecosystems as natural infrastructure into infrastructure planning and design. The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) is a new organization designed to bring together diverse bodies of expertise and types of institutions to develop the next generation of water resource management and support its operationalization.This approach seeks to avoid degrading our freshwater ecosystems that provide us with multiple services, and avoid building expensive water infrastructure projects. These goals are designed to explore and refine potential approaches and to help other members test them on the ground to determine the extent to which they can reduce maintenance costs, restore ecosystems, and sustain community livelihoods while also creating naturally climate-adaptive water management systems.
