The World Water Council is a non-profit organisation known as "Association Loi 1901".


    The World Water Council is governed by its Constitution and By-Laws voted by its members through its General Assembly.

    The General Assembly meets every three years in ordinary meetings and as needed in extraordinary meetings. It elects and appoints a maximum of 35 members to the Board of Governors in accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws.
