At the General Assembly in May IAWD welcomed three new members to the organisation: Compania Apa Brasov SA and Apaserv Satu Mare in Romania and Vodovod Subotica in Serbia. Each of these utilities are active members of their national associations and have been active in improvements to their operation as well as engaged in international activities.
Voice of the Danube
In March 2016 a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between IAWD and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) through the Global Water Operator´s Partnerschips Alliance (GWOPA) to establish Water Operators’ Partnerships (WOPs) in the Danube region.
NALAS brings together 16 associations which represent roughly 9000 local authorities, directly elected by more than 80 million citizens of this region. NALAS promotes the process of decentralisation in cooperation with central governments and international organisations, considering local self-government as a key issue in the current process of transition affecting the various countries in the South-East Europe.
The purpose of this IAWD CEO Meeting is to initiate and establish a regular opportunity for Leaders of the water sector in the Danube region to share information and experience with one another on topics of mutual interest related to utilitity management. IAWD is planning to convene at least one such meeting every year as part of its offer of benefits to utilities for participation in the organization.
