Cooperation with Spanish Stakeholders

Written by

Since the establishment of GWOPA’s Secretariat in Barcelona in April 2013, efforts have been made to establish a close relationship with water and sanitation actors of the host country, and to develop WOPs that benefit from the capacity of Spanish operators.

Since July 2012, the AFD and GWOPA have been collaborating closely to facilitate WOPs to develop the capacity of water operators receiving technical and financial assistance from AFD.

During the first week of March 2015, three teams from African operators participating in the WOPs supported by OFID and GWOPA conducted exchange visits within the framework of their WOPs.
