International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network

Welcome to Twinning

No two GEF International Waters projects are alike, but many face similar challenges or are tasked with addressing similar transboundary issues. A successful way for projects to learn from each other is to match them up with more mature projects or a partner institution through twinning exchanges. 

Twinnings have successfully built the capacity of project and government staff to achieve improved project implementation, results, and a higher success of sustainability.

A 2019 survey of the GEF International Waters portfolio found that 75% of project managers identified twinnings as a key tool in helping them overcome project management barriers.

We invite you to use our twinning portal to search for a knowledge donor to twin with or to submit a twinning request to let our community know that you are looking for help.
