A GWP Country Water Partnership (CWP) is made up of the GWP Partners in a country. Being a Partner in a country makes it eligible to participate in network meetings, whether at country, regional, or global level. GWP Partner representatives may be members of a country Steering Committee (or equivalent).

The operation of each CWP is based on GWP's Conditions for Accreditation for CWPs, and guided by Statutes agreed by Partners in the country and approved by GWPO (the global secretariat in Stockholm). 

Each CWP decides how formally, or informally, it wishes to act. In order for a CWP to receive funding from GWPO, the CWP must be hosted by another organisation which can give the CWP a legal identity in the country, or be registered as a legal entity under national law and have the ability to manage funds according to GWPO rules.
