During the pilot phase, four partnerships between Stadtentwässerung Dresden and Lvivvodokanal (Ukraine), Hamburg Wasser and Miyahuna (Jordan), between Gelsenwasser and Lukanga WSC (Zambia) and OOWV Oldenburg and Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality (South Africa) will be funded. Two more partnerships between Hamburg Wasser and Kashwasa and Kuwasa (Tanzania), Stadtentwässerung Dresden and Nadvirna and Ternopil (Ukraine) were concluded at the end of 2021. Furthermore, since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, we have been promoting solidarity partnerships between German and Ukrainian municipal utilities. Due to the current situation, the focus there is on the procurement of the necessary technical equipment as well as the required know-how.
Our services address all German and international municipal enterprises from the Global South that are interested in implementing a project partnership together.
Under “Publications” you will find further information, including reports and policy resolutions on development engagement by municipal enterprises, and publications on water and municipal partnerships.
