In the Asia-Pacific region, GWOPA has been working in close cooperation with WaterLinks, a regional platform of water services operators, practitioners and development partners that supports Water Operator Partnerships in the Asia-Pacific region.
Established in 2008, WaterLinks is a fully independent, non-profit organization. Principal WaterLinks activities are:
- WOPs support and facilitation (over 70 WOPs to date);
- Regional capacity building program development (e.g. training, toolkits, manuals, studies); and
- Knowledge management and networking.
GWOPA collaborates with Waterlinks to facilitate WOPs and develop thematic materials.
