Since 2009, the Global Water Operators' Partnerships Alliance (GWOPA), an initiative hosted by the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), has developed a network of utilities and their partners committed to peer-to-peer support. Water and sanitation service providers, connected through GWOPA, are sharing and helping one another improve services every day through not-for-profit partnership. This year, GWOPA will hold its 4th Global WOPs Congress —a global gathering of hundreds of public utilities and their partners such as financing institutions, NGOs, regulators, government, academia and others.
What really makes this event unique is both that it’s fully FREE and ONLINE, as well as its focus on water and sanitation operators and their staff. The Congress will feature different sessions and spaces to allow for exchange, learning and collaboration.
• Thematic Sessions will take stock of current water and sanitation operators’ issues, showcase good approaches, and offer recommendations for how operators can tackle challenges through peer-to-peer partnerships.
• Water Operators’ Partnerships (WOPs) Sessions will highlight the latest trends, challenges, and possible ways to increase and improve the WOPs practice.
• Finally, the #OPERATORsSTAGE will share operators’ experiences of peer-to-peer support, partnership or working together.
