Earlier this year, the European Union launched a Water Operator Partnership (WOP) Programme to leverage the demonstrated capacity of utilities to help one another reaching the SDGs.
More than 140 projects were submitted in response to a Call for Proposals for the programme, which is funded by the European Union and managed by UN-Habitat's GWOPA. After thorough expert evaluation, over 20 WOP projects have been selected to be funded (An overview of the selected projects can be found here EU WOPs (gwopa.org)). EBC is a partner in two of them: with Helsinki’s water utility HSY in Bahir Dar (Ethiopia) and with Madrid’s water utility Canal de Isabel II in Lima (Peru), to support benchmarking activities.
The actual activities are expected to start later in 2021 and will last for max. three years. If you would like to know more about the projects or EBC´s involvement, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
