The development of a roadmap of reforms to support inter-municipal cooperation in the water sector alongside a pilot project for analysing the appropriate scale and scope of water supply and sanitation (WSS) systems was facilitated in the context of the national policy dialogue (NPD) in Ukraine. This page summarises the main activities and achievements since 2007.
Priority areas of work and main activities
- Strengthening the legal and institutional framework for water management in order to adapt to climate change. This covers water diplomacy activities in the transboundary Dniester river basin shared with the neighbouring Republic of Moldova. Activities were conducted in cooperation with OSCE and UNEP.
- Achieving sustainable water management, safe drinking water and adequate sanitation under the Protocol on Water and Health.
- Addressing the over-fragmentation of water supply services, and identifying the necessary reforms and barriers to their implementation. The government is now considering options for the consolidation of the WSS sector.
