A 5-year hosting arrangement with the Government of Germany provides the GWOPA Secretariat with stable core revenue to implement its strategy. Support from German BMZ contributes to the staff and operational costs of GWOPA’s work, including advocacy and communications, hosting of global events, WOP monitoring and research activities, and the development of guidance materials and tools for effective Water Operators’ Partnerships (WOPs). Hosting funds permit GWOPA to work globally and to collaborate with regional organizations in order to extend the reach of its work.
In addition to the foundational support from the Government of Germany, GWOPA leads a number of projects which also contribute to Strategy Implementation. Projects are carried out with funding from specific donors and tend to have a specific geographical or thematic focus.
