UNESCO Etxea takes part at the first international conference of the global water operators alliance

The head of UNESCO Etxeas Environmental Department, Josu Sanz, with various representatives from the Consorcio de Aguas de Bilbao Bizkaia (Bilbao Bizkaia Waters Consortium), took part last 3rd and 4th December at the 1st International Conference of the Global Water Operators Alliance. This meeting, at which water operators from five continents took part, was organised by UN Habitat, the United Nations programme for Urban Settlements, together with the United Nations Office to Support the Decade of Action Water Source of Life 2005-2015.

The water operators are potentially very interesting agents from the point of view of cooperation between actors from the North and from the South, an initiative which is being coordinated by UN Habitat through the Global Water Operators Alliance (GWOPAs).

Representatives from UN Habitat visited the Basque Country last October at a meeting arranged by UNESCO Etxea and Euskal Fondoa, at which the Basque water operators and various actors (the Basque Government, NGDOs, etc.) stated their interest in this type of initiative.
