Open call: African utilities looking to improve water supply services to low income customers


GWOPA, in collaboration with WaterAid and the African Water Association (AfWA) through its WOP-Africa platform, has launched a call for applications for African mentee utilities for a pro-poor WOP in Africa.

About the Call
One African utility will be selected from the applicants to engage in a Water Operators' Partnership. The cost of the partnership will be covered by WaterAid, in collaboration with the African Water Association (AfWA) through its WOP-Africa platform and GWOPA.

The focus of the partnership will be to improve services in low-income areas. Planned outcomes include:

  • a roadmap with initial steps to improving services
  • a short-term action plan
  • a medium-term performance improvement plan

The performance improvement plan will aim for better provision of water supply services through the establishment of suitable Low Income Customer Support (LICSU) structure.
