Cap-Net is an international network for capacity development in sustainable water management. It is made up of a partnership of autonomous international, regional and national institutions and networks committed to capacity development in the water sector.

Cap-Net was conceived at the 2nd UNDP Symposium in Water Capacity development, held at IHE in Delft in 1996, the project was developed in a collaborative effort between UNDP and IHE (now UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education). It became operational in 2002. Since then Cap-Net has developed rapidly into a reference for capacity development and networking for sustainable water management.
