About ISW and SWE

The International Secretariat for Water (ISW) and Solidarity Water Europe (SWE) bring together citizens and organizations that are committed and active in the cause of water. Their commitment is to ensure the application of the founding texts of the movement (the Montreal Charter and the Declaration of Strasbourg) to ensure access to drinking water and sanitation for all. The ISW is based in Montreal, Canada, and SEE is based in Strasbourg, France.
