IWA Publishing Open Access Ambassadors

The mission of International Water Association (IWA) Publishing is to disseminate important information about advances in the water sector. One of the best ways to do this is through Open Access, so we’re actively working on ways to make as much of our content openly available as possible.

Our OA Ambassadors raise awareness in their local communities about global OA movements as well as related opportunities through IWA Publishing. They are representatives of both the International Water Association and IWA Publishing and our joint goals to empower the next generation of water leaders and to shape the future of the water sector.
