UN-Habitat Handbook on Human Right to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation

The Handbook serves as a practical guide explaining the meaning and legal obligations that stem from the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation, translating the often complicated legal language into information that can be readily understood by practitioners including government officials and members of civil society organizations.

With contributions from key actors, including GWOPA/UN-Habitat, this Handbook is a valuable resource for water and sanitation operators or their national associations as they are key actors in working towards access for all.

GWOPA participated in the WOPs Workshop organized in parallel with the Annual Convention of ANEAS (National Association of Water and Sanitation Utilities of Mexico) on November 11th, 2014 in the city of Merida, Mexico, famous for its rich history in Mayan Culture. ANEAS has been a member of GWOPA International Steering Committee since 2009 and is actively supporting WOPs in the region and GWOPA's secretariat stressed the importance of ANEAS's role in the region and for WOPs in the country.
 
ANEAS presented their 3 categories of WOPs: one to many, international and national WOPs, and emphasized that their focus will now be to formalize existing partnerships to be labelled and recognized as WOPs, these include ad-hoc exchanges between member operators. As the first national WOP platform in the region, it is expected that ANEAS will play a leading role in implementing the national WOPs together with international WOPs.

#BEWOP: First-hand study of WOPs in Indonesia

BEWOP: First-hand study of WOPs in Indonesia

As part of BEWOP’s research and analysis of on-going WOPs, a staff member from UNESCO-IHE travelled to Indonesia to analyse and draw lessons from three WOPs taking place there. These cases include national and international WOPs and will provide valuable examples of good practice and highlight challenges faced in the process. It is also an opportunity to gather operator feedback on the WOPs process and guide BEWOP’s research and tool production work.

Indonesia’s water operators are called PDAM and are divided by region or sub-regions. A large number of WOPs in Indonesia are facilitated by PERPAMSI, the national WOPs platform under their special program of 'national solidarity' through which they partner a strong performing national water company with another national utility performing less effectively.
