Who we are

Watershared is a joint venture funded by the public—local governments and donors including the European Union—private sector investors such as Swiss Re, and foundations such as Nature and Culture International (NCI). Local governments, such as CVC implement each program, with technical support from Natura Boliva, Rare and NCI. The research upon which watershared is based was undertaken by Harvard University and the National University of Colombia, supported by the Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation Program and the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council, Innovations for Poverty Action and the Jameel Poverty Action Lab.
