Global Water Operators Partnerships Congress hosted in Bonn 22-25 May

From the 22-25 May, the Global Water Operators Partnerships Alliance (GWOPA), an UN-Habitat programme, will host the 5th Global Water Operators Partnerships Congress, in Bonn, Germany.

Water Resources Management

Reliable water and sanitation services are critical in difficult times, yet conflict, rapid population growth, climate change, ecosystem degradation, and an enduring pandemic are complicating the work of operators.

The 5th Global Water Operators Partnerships Congress, ‘Resilience in challenging times: mobilizing collaboration for future-ready water and sanitation service providers’, provides water and sanitation practitioners a platform to discuss how collaboration between operators can help them navigate these challenges.

The Congress features plenaries and technical and regional sessions both in-person and online, gathering WOP practitioners, mainly operators, and also UN agencies, cooperation agencies, financial institutions, NGOs, CSOs, local governments, and research and learning institutions from across the world.
