The SWE Community of Practice is a global collaboration working collectively to advance the SWE sector.
The SWE Community of Practice’s goal is to harness the power of collective action to improve SWE efficiencies by: sharing best practices and establishing sector standards and definitions; strengthening the evidence base of SWE viability; developing the tools, processes, and systems to facilitate the replication of SWEs; and accelerating the scaling of SWEs through coordinated advocacy to mobilize funding and improve policies in the sector.
The SWE Community of Practice is composed of an active group of SWE stakeholders, including implementing NGOs and private enterprises. Leveraging their own areas of expertise, members are engaged in advancing the sector’s agenda to improve SWE practices and take SWEs to scale.
