11th Roundtable on Financing Water

The 11th Roundtable on Financing Water on the EU’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine – will discuss challenges and opportunities for financing water and consider opportunities to scale up water investments in EaP countries. The roundtable will focus on the EaP’s post-2020 agenda, including targets on improving water and air quality, ensuring environmental and climate resilience, and promoting fair and inclusive societies.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Commission will convene the hybrid event, in partnership with the Government of the Netherlands, the World Water Council, and the World Bank.  The meeting will bring together leaders and representatives from governments, particularly from the EU and EU member States, public and private investors, development banks, financial institutions, water utilities, and other stakeholders.

The Roundtable on Financing Water has met ten times, around specific themes and regions. The regional meetings offer an opportunity to refine and share knowledge related to water financing needs and capacities in the region and bring together regional actors around shared action.

Sessions will focus on:

  • Financing the EU Water Acquis: Sharing EU member States’ experience;
  • Lessons learned from the OECD’s assessment of the enabling environment for investment in water security in EaP countries;
  • Progress towards financially sustainable water sectors: Application and reform of economic instruments in EaP countries;
  • Leveraging donor financing to diversify financing sources and mechanisms: Lessons learned that are applicable to EaP countries;
  • Financing River Basin Management Planning; and
  • Adapting and financing novel approaches to water management in EaP countries.
