WOP-Africa and GWOPA session in Marrakesh, AFWA Congress
WOP-Africa and GWOPA will co-organize a session on Water Operators' Partnerships in Africa during the AfWA Congress in Marrakesh, on the 22d of February.
The Water Operators’ Partnerships’ Initiative, which aims at helping operators to help one another on a not-for-profit basis, has gained momentum worldwide and on the continent. Coordinated by GWOPA, a program of UN-Habitat, regional platforms for WOPs assist operators in connecting them to one another and in designing their co-learning projects. In Africa, WOP-Africa offers good opportunities for the operators to be part of the initiative, to learn from others and to share their own knowledge. WOP practitioners will share with the audience their successful experiences of peer-exchanges and will discuss why it is worth it to get involved, either in South-South or in North-South exchanges.
