The FWP consists of six panels made up of representatives from :

  1. the government and its public institutions;
  2. NGOs, organizations and foundations;
  3. regional authorities and parliamentarians;
  4. economic players;
  5. research and training establishments and

Together they develop common, consensus-based messages and communicate them in European and international bodies and networks such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Union for the Mediterranean and at events such as the World Water Forum and the World Water Week in Stockholm.
