About Us


The Global Public Policy Network was originally conceived to provide a mechanism to help global stakeholders prepare for and provide input to the water and sanitation review at the 16th session of the Commission on Sustainable Development.

To find out more about GPPN activities at the 16th session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD-16), please click here.

The GPPN always intended to continue its work beyond the initial water and sanitation review process at CSD-16, and serve as a platform to identify priorities for the water and sanitation agenda up to and beyond 2015. To find out more about our activities and priorities for 2008-9, since CSD-16, please click here.

It is composed of a Secretariat, an international Steering Committee, and, where appropriate, Working Groups.  To find out more about them, please click on the links on the right.
