Consultations on finance and water support Mediterranean water strategy

Posted: 2010-03-15

Experiences and recommendations from an Expert Consultation Workshop on Finance and Water in North Africa and the Wider Mediterranean Region held in February 2010, in Madrid, were fed into the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Strategy for Water in the Mediterranean (SWM) process.

The inputs are particularly relevant to the financing chapter. The workshop was an opportunity for the 70 participants – representing governments, the private sector, civil society, international financing institutions and the donor community – to discuss options for financing the water sector at national and regional levels and examine the challenges they face. The findings of the workshop will also feed into the meeting of African Ministers of Finance and Ministers of Water that the African Ministers' Council on Water (AMCOW) and the African Development Bank (AfDB) are planning to hold with support from the EU Water Initiative Finance Working Group (EUWI-FWG), GWP and others.
