About the session

Languages EN, FR

France is home to hundreds of water and sanitation operators with a huge potential to participate in supporting peers towards SGD 6. They have developed competencies, skills and experiences which could fruitfully be shared with other operators if needed. This session will gather different water sector actors in order to reflect on how to structure and boost public water and sanitation French operators’ engagement in WOPs.
