WOP for Scaling of NRW Management and Pro-poor Water Supply within Dhaka and to other Cities in Bangladesh

This WOP aims to improve the capacity and performance of Dhaka Water and Sewerage Authority (DWASA) in NRW management and water services delivery to its 14 million customers with a special focus on service delivery improvement in Low Income Areas. The WOP will also support DWASA in becoming a mentor to other water service providers in the region.

Dhaka Water Supply & Sewerage Authority (DWASA) was established in 1963 with the mandate of supplying water and wastewater services to the population of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Following the WASA Act, 1996, DWASA is operating as an autonomous, service oriented commercial organization under the Ministry of Infrastructure with its own Governing Board.

At the end of this EU-GWOPA WOP program, the partners, DWASA, VEI and IHE Delft will have developed a package of training modules and support programmes, and have provided these trainings to other WASAs e.g. in Chittagong, Kulna and/or Rajshahi.
