  • II congressReport of the II Congress of GWOPA held in Barcelona in 2013, in which the main themes treated were finance of WOPs, their results, learning approaches, capacity development for non-revenue water management, water workers, and risk reduction, besides an overview on the regional WOP platforms work, recent performance and future goals.


    An interesting initiative is led by a coalition of partners, notably UNW-DPC: the water loss reduction project. The aim of the waterlossreduction.comwebsite is toprovide information and share knowledge on efficient water loss reduction from drinking water supply systems.

    NRW reduction practicioners will find there Guidelines for Waterloss Reduction. The materials are meant to provide authorities from the water sector, water utilities and professional associations with all information required to understand the origin, nature and impact of water losses, to develop and implement a customised counter-strategy and to choose the most efficient methods and instruments for water loss reduction.

    The overall structure of the guidelines consists of three materials (all available in English, French and Spanish)

    Summary for decision-makers:

    The summary addresses decision makers of institutions and water utilities in order to raise awareness for the economical, social and ecological aspects of water losses
