Applying Knowledge


Knowledge Networks and learning communities are powerful mechanisms for sharing information and knowledge in the development cooperation. These mechanisms ensure communication and coordination among actors to help achieve sustainable development. Networks and communities act as effective catalysts for building up relationships and commitment among public and private stakeholders at local, national, regional and international levels.

Skat Foundation has developed and run many successful networks and communities of practice that add value by bringing professionals together in flexible ways to share, collaborate and achieve much more impact that they would be able to as individuals.

Skat Foundation hosts the Secretariat of the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) since 2009 under the management of the Director Dr. Kerstin Danert and the Deputy Director, Sean Furey. It is a vibrant network of almost 10,000 people who are committed to, or interested in improving access to drinking water in rural areas around the world and to fulfil the vision of sustainable rural water services for all.

Since 2016 Skat Foundation supports the Hydro Empowerment Network (HPNET) by providing professional competences on network development as well as on micro/mini hydropower.

This video shows how HPNET supports local micro hydro practitioners in implementing community-scale hydropower solutions.

Skat Foundation participates actively in the following Networks and Communities of Practice:
