Cap-Net UNDP is an international network for capacity development in Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). Its formation in 2003 was initiated by the UNDP's decision to declare Cap-Net as International Network for Capacity Development in Sustainable Water Management. Cap-Net is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SIDA and the EU and hosted by the Water Research Commission in Pretoria, South Africa. EU funds from the Water Facility support capacity building actions in Africa and the Caribbean. The goal was building effective global networks for education, research institution and international organization by utilizing IWRM to improve accessibility, knowledge and to be able to become an information resource align with Cap-Net objectives.
Capacity building networks are the key partners and implementing members of Cap-Net. They are autonomous, usually informal, associations of people and organizations with a common interest in capacity building and water. Most of them have no independent funding and they commit a considerable amount of their own time and resources to the network.
The networks at country, regional and global level are increasing delivery of information, training and education on integrated water resources management, water supply and sanitation and other water subjects. They are also sharing their materials and expertise thus contributing to the global knowledge base and south - south collaboration while increasing coordination and efficiency.
