Boosting Effectiveness in WOPs is the objective of this new 5-year project that is a partnership between UNESCO-IHE and GWOPA with the support of the Dutch Government.
The 5-year research and outreach project will aim to strengthen knowledge transfer and change processes in WOPs in order to maximize the potential for operational improvements of water operators. The partners will study WOPs to develop and disseminate resources to support their more effective design and implementation.
Throughout the fall of 2013, GWOPA and UNESCO-IHE hosted consultative workshops at key events to seek the inputs of target audiences for BEWOP products. Events were held during Stockholm World Water Week and at UNESCO-IHE in September, and during the IWA Development Congress in Nairobi in October.
A group of twently utilities or WOP facilitators come together with the project leaders to give feedback on the programme development, hereby ensuring that the activities of BEWOP are firmly rooted in demand and have clear practical value for WOPs audiences.
