A range of organizations have been involved in the implementation of the first phase of CReW. The main “actors” in CReW have been the ministries with responsibility for water and wastewater and the water and wastewater (WW) utilities in the countries of the Wider
Caribbean Region (WCR). Note that in most, if not all, countries, more than one ministry has some responsibility for water and sanitation. Activities have included the involvement of other government ministries and agencies, academia, the private sector and non-governmental organizations but there are opportunities to engage more fully with these partners.
