WATER OPERATORS' PARTNERSHIPS FOR SOUTH EAST EUROPE - SC
During the UNSGAB meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2009, South East European water ministers expressed their support for WOPs and the establishment of a regional platform to enable them. Demand for WOPs has since been echoed at regional meetings of water utilities and their associations. A WOP-SEE Platform was, in response, established as a network of partners working to facilitate WOPs in the region. Its overall goal is to provide better and equitable water and sanitation services to all in the region.
The activities at the WOP-SEE Platform are planned, coordinated and monitored by a Secretariat and supervised and guided by a Steering Committee, comprising national associations, water and wastewater operators and other stakeholders.
Supporting stakeholders outside of SEE are more then welcome to join.
Following the Water Operators' Partnerships for South East Europe (WOP-SEE) workshop in Sofia, Bulgaria on November 20th, 2012, representatives of EYDAP a.s. and Bulgarian Water Association (BWA) arranged a visit of Bulgarian delegation to EYDAP in April 2013.
Bulgarian delegation will be led by the Deputy Minister of the Ministry for Regional Development and Public Works, with participation of 12 managers of water utilities from Bulgaria. During the visit different topics related to state-of-the art operation of water and waste water networks will be discussed. Another important topic will be how Water Operators' Partnerships may support the process of utility performance improvement in the region.
