GWOPA: Helping Water and Sanitation Service Providers Help one Another Reach the SDGs
The EU-WOP Programme, funded by the European Union and managed by UN-Habitat led GWOPA, leverages the demonstrated capacity of utilities to help one another reach the SDGs.
What is the EU-WOP Programme?
The EU WOP Programme 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 programme, between 250.000 and 450.000 USD is available for 20 to 30 Water Operators' Partnerships (WOPs) projects of 36 months' duration.
What are WOPs?
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.
