BEWOP is a research and outreach initiative aimed at boosting the effectiveness of Water Operators Partnerships (WOPs) around the world. Launched in September 2013, the project is a collaboration between the world’s foremost water sector capacity development institute, IHE Delft, and UN-Habitat’s Global Water Operators’ Partnership Alliance, the organization leading the global WOPs movement.


WaterWorX aims to increase sustainable access to drinking water to 10 million people in 2030. Through Water Operator Partnerships (WOPs) between Dutch and local water companies, WaterWorX is working on long term sustainable water services by improving operation and maintenance of the local water companies and getting their finances in order.
