In 2014, GWOPA began to more actively support learning and exchange between WOP platforms from different regions.

GWOPA continued its support in 2014 to WaterLinks, the WOPs platform in Asia and the Pacific, notably in the implementation of a climate change-themed WOP between the national utility of Sri Lanka and Yarra Valley in Australia.

Recognizing the regional diversity of the platforms, GWOPA’s efforts in 2014 were directed to consolidating well-performing platforms, such as WOP-LAC, and to increase the direct support to strengthen existing and growing platforms such as WOP-Africa and Cari-WOP.
