About Us

Our Vision

The promotion of professional excellence in the water sector, through building expertise, sharing knowledge and improving quality of life.

Short form: `Promoting professional excellence in the water sector.`

Our Mission

WISA, your professional, comprehensive, independent, volunteer, water sector community institution, that provides diverse membership benefits, and support the Africa water sector in a representative and effective way. It strives to be an effective and efficient organization, subscribing to the principles of its memorandum of incorporation and complying with process of good corporate governance.

Our Values


We are transparent, committed and fair. We accept accountability


We strive for excellence and professionalism. We are respectful of one another.


We are inclusive of all people. We facilitate connectivity.


We are honest and reliable


We do things differently


WISA subscribes to a multi-disciplinary approach for its sector. Members are from various backgrounds and disciplines. The various categories of membership cater for the needs of all professionals involved in the water sector.

The Institute offers both individual and non-individual membership.


Patron membership is the most prestigious form of membership offered by WISA and is renewable annually at the discretion of the Institute. Because of the eminence of its position in the water sector, WISA is extremely circumspect in the selection of Patron Members which it has limited in number so as not to dilute the status and prominence of being a Patron Member of WISA. Typically organisations are only accepted to become Patron Members upon application, should there exist an opportunity for them to contribute towards the mission or the activities of WISA. The most significant benefit will be the public awareness of your association with the only Water Sector representative body in Southern Africa.
