This feature allows you to create a presence on the WaterWiki for your organization, department, research project or working group that will highlight their work to the water community.

The Resources Listing space on the WaterWiki is a who-does-what directory for the water community. This is the place to share information on the work of your organisation, society or research group.

  1. Do include a logo in your profile so it will stand out in our listing table.
    2. Don’t forget to include contact details and links for your resource listing so users know how to get in touch with you.
    3. Do post a link to your WaterWiki organisation profile on your own website so that your followers know where to find you.
