Danube Learning Partnership

The Programs

The Danube Learning Partnership offers a set of capacity building programs that are developed at regional level and delivered at national level by water utility associations and local partners (the Hubs) in national language. 

UBP Utility Benchmarking Program

The utility benchmarking programs assist utilities in identifying areas where performance improvement is needed...

EE Energy Efficiency

High energy costs often contribute to unsustainable operating costs that directly affect the financial health of water supply and sanitation utilities and affordability of their services...

CE Commercial Efficiency

The successful management of high cost water infrastructure is essential to operate and deliver the required service as cost effectively as possible. The management of commercial activities is an integral part of achieving this goal...

WSP Water Safety Planning

Lack of response mechanisms to pollution outbreaks and increasingly frequent natural disasters such as floods and droughts hinder the ability of water supply and sanitation utilities to sustainably provide their services, hence posing a risk to national public health...

NRW Non Revenue Water

High levels of Non-Revenue water (water either physically lost or not payed for by customers) is a major problem in many utilities. This program introduces specific tools for diagnosis of water loss with the aim to increase understanding of where the losses are and how they can be tackled.

AM Asset Management

Effective asset management planning is a basis for reducing costs of the operation of water services and ensuring the sustainability of the service. Tools for managing the infrastructure associated with water supply and wastewater services (pipes, pumps, reservoirs, meters etc.) are the focus of this program... 

AF Access to Financing

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) represent a substantially new and different challenge for the water sector with significant financing needs in the field of the water related SDGs. Public resources will probably need to be combined with private resources to be able to meet these large financing needs...
