Hosting call for the Global Water Operators’ Partnerships Alliance secretariat

The Global Water Operators’ Partnerships Alliance (GWOPA) is a UN-Habitat programme focused on strengthening public water utilities around the world and enhancing collaboration between them.

Water and Sanitation Utilities have a critical role in achieving many of the Sustainable Development Goals at the local level. In small towns and big cities, water and sanitation operators help deliver on basic human rights (UNGA Res 64/292) providing services that are fundamental to inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities (SDG 11) where no one is left behind (New Urban Agenda).

The GWOPA Secretariat is managed by UN-Habitat and guided by a multi-stakeholder International Steering Committee. UN-Habitat is now opening a new call for a Host to the GWOPA Secretariat for the 2020-2024 period.
