TheWaterChannel was launched in 2009, with a rather simple objective: build an open resource with video-based material on water management – available online and as long as the digital divide persists offline. Our main motivations are: (a) rich video material on water is produced all over the world – but never widely circulated (b) we could see an increasing need for visuals in education, self-learning, policy and local water initiatives.
As TheWaterChannel interacted with its user-community, it evolved. We undertook a broader set of activities resulting in webinars, thematic pages, triggering discussions and debate through policy documentation as well as documenting forgotten good practices.
We invite all of you to join us through uploading videos, becoming friends or partners, joining discussion and sharing ideas!
