Our organisation

In line with its NGO members’ wishes, Coalition Eau is set up as an informal network. Its structure is similar to that of a non-profit association.


Coalition Eau consists of:

  • A Plenary Assembly of all NGO members that defines the intervention strategies;
  • A Coordination Group, which supervises and supports the Permanent Secretariat to implement activities. This Coordination Group is composed of 5 NGOs: Action contre la Faim, BlueEnergy France, Eau Vive International, GRET, Secours Islamique France ;
  • Working Groups that develop common positions and implement specific activities;
  • A Permanent Secretariat, which has two members of staff who coordinate and carry out activities.

legal structure

Coalition Eau does not have its own specific legal structure as our members have opted for a more informal set-up. Instead, we are a network of NGOs administratively, financially and legally hosted by Gret, the NGO coordinator of Coalition Eau.
