Water utilities worldwide are key players in the sustainable management of water as a resource. German operators are already supporting the development of sustainable water management in developing and emerging countries. However, volunteering and isolated consulting projects are not enough to integrate the know-how of municipal operators from Germany into development cooperation in a structured way.
The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has taken up GWP’s approach of → Operator Partnerships and will carry out a pilot project starting in the summer of 2019, in which three to five partnerships will be developed and implemented. Basically, it’s about building long-term collaborations that will take effect beyond the pilot phase.
We would like to reach a broad participation of German municipal water suppliers and therefore invite all interested ones warmly.
Interested parties are welcome to contact → Lisa Lohmann at the GWP office.
