11 Means of sending information to the users 1 By post (mainly water bills) 2. Through the web 3. Direct information through Customer Services (Not all operators provide customer services) By phone - At the operator offices 4. Posted at the company offices
12 but also AND INCREASINGLY 5.Campaigns in the media and other types 6.Annual reports and thematic reports 7.Distribution of leaflets and brochures 8.Film projections, distribution of CDs/DVDs 9.Posters and exhibits

19 Comments and Recommendations Comments Recommendations Water bills are frequently the solely/ prevailing users information channel Information is mainly on billing, tariffs and types of services provided User satisfaction surveys are still not used by many operators and, when used, results are not always made available to the user In countries where there is high level of access to internet, the possibilities of ICTs may need to be further explored by most operators Further explore other means of sending information to the users Expand information provided to the user (e.g. water quality, water use, ongoing projects, etc.) Improve the management of customer relationships through user satisfaction surveys Increase transparency: publish and promote access to results Invest more in virtual office spaces and services Explore other ways of customer involvement (e.g. through social networks)
20 Existing Communication Campaigns

28 Comments and Recommendations Comments The most common media in communication campaigns are visual (TV) and spoken (Radio), Not so much written Different communication focus according to regions: efficient water use, environment, Right to access, Health and Hygiene Communication campaigns are often limited to the duration of the event or concern (e.g. drought, water quality problem, etc.) Results of campaigns are frequently not made available enough to the public. Recommendations Need to have synergies with educatin programms Need to consider also communicating the importance of protecting water sources and value of the resource (including environmental) Work on a continuous base, insist on preparedness Promote access to results as an additional mean to motivate people in pursuing the promoted behavior.
29 Educational activities
30 Objective Educate in specific values: Which values? Increase knowledge: Of which specific issues? Promote behavior changes: To achieve what?
31 Most frequent modalities Visits to water/sewage treatment plants Preparation and distribution of educational materials Exhibitions Conferences, workshops, debates Contests
32 Morocco: Office National de l Eau Potable (ONEP) Initiative: Kids corner Educational levels: primary and secondary education Themes: water cycle, water treatment, water consumption, water pollution Means: mainly materials to be downloaded from the web, painting contests Main strengths: materials available in French and in Arabic

35 Comments and Recommendations Comments Frequently, the approach is too general Themes covered mainly just refer to water consumption/conservation, water pollution and wastewater treatment Education is still a non-existing or a marginal activity for most operators Recommendations Themes could be made closer to daily life situations Consequences of individual/collective behavior should be considered in educational activities Themes should be enlarged and other values from a SD perspective. Take water issues into schools and beyond school walls. Support efforts of partnerships between operators on education programs.
36 Other Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives
37 United Nations Global Compact A strategic policy initiative for those organizations that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anticorruption Examples include: Spain: AGBAR, EMASESA, Canal de Isabel II, EMUASA France: Suez Environnement, Veolia Environnement Colombia: Empresas Públicas de Medellín (EPM)

40 Comments and Recommendations Comments Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives are still at a nascent stage for most operators Horizontal cooperation is not enough explored by most operators Recommendations Promote CSR activities and adhere to the UN Global Compact Initiative, make it known and promote participation from other operators Adhere to the Global Water Operators Partnerships Alliance
41 INFORMATION Final Comments Variety of practices. Rapid transformation in relations between operators and the public.. Consumer Rights but also citizens rights PP- and responsibilities (as users). It is helping breaching the gap between expectations of citizens and reality of operators services. COMMUNICATION Integrating public opinion into water management practices of operators is changing priorities and communication practices. Operators have been key in transforming attitudes and behavior specially in droughts and in providing information about issues that the citizens are concerned about (water quality, services). Specially in the case of permanent campaigns. Increased transparency and accountability of Water Operators. Contributes to citizens taking part in responsible water use. EDUCACION Education campaigns of operators: key in the change from immediate to long term behavior change. RSC UN Global Compact and WOPs key initiatives. Operators and Citizen become committed to solidarity. And ethical and transparent behavior in the context of Sustainable Development.
42 The questions for the Working Groups What else can you tell us about your experience with this and other communication and information practices?. What works? REAL IMPACT: improved water use; hygiene and sanitation practices; resilience from droughts and floods, transparency in WOs Practices.
