GWP Moldova made recommendations to five local authorities across Moldova for improvements in water management practices and for reducing environmental damage, together with assessments of the effect of these improvements on community development, the environment, and cost estimates.
A compilation of existing pilot projects awaiting implementation was also drawn up.
This work was based on a series of consultation workshops held in the five rural communities with a total population of about 350,000. Household connections to the mains water supply in the study area average 30–35 percent and to the sewage system, 15–20 percent. These levels are scheduled to double by 2020. GWP Moldova, in cooperation with local stakeholders, is contributing to achieving this target through the preparation of management plans, training activities and the compilation of best practices.
