Advisory Boards

The Water JPI is assisted in its work by two groups of advisors who sit on the Advisory Boards; a Scientific and Technological Board (STB) and a Stakeholders Advisory Group (SAG), there are usually 10 to 12 advisors in each group. Members are appointed for a term of three years with the possibility of a second appointment.

The Advisory Boards give advice to the Water JPI Governing Board and Management Board on specific issues as requested. Their main role is to ensure that the Water JPI activities continue to be relevant to water research needs, relevant to the needs of water sector stakeholders (enterprises, policy-makers, researchers, society) and of high scientific quality.

In order to contain global costs, the Advisory Boards are shared with the Water4All Partnership - Water Security for the Planet, which can consult them on specific issues according to its own needs.
