Synopsis: The EU WOP Program is a four-year initiative, led by UN-Habitat’s Global Water Operators’ Partnerships Alliance (GWOPA) and funded by the European Commission DEVCO. Through the program, between USD 250,000 and 450,000 is available for each of the 20 to 30 Water Operators’ Partnerships (WOPs) projects of 36 months’ duration.
WOPs are peer support between two or more water operators, carried out on a not-for-profit basis. Through mentorship, WOPs progressively strengthen beneficiary utilities’ capacity and performance on management, financial and technical levels to implement operational and organizational changes that lead to better and more sustainable services.
UN-Habitat is calling on eligible water and sanitation operators to collaborate with partners to present WOPs Project Proposals for funding under the program.
