Implementing the Water-related MDGs in EECCA



The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commit countries to reduce by half the number of people who do not have access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation by 2015 compared to 1990 levels. At the same time EECCA countries are also committed to the implementation of the Almaty “Guiding Principles for Water Sector Reforms” adopted at a meeting of EECCA Economic, Finance and Environment Ministers in Almaty in 2000, and the policy conclusions and recommendations made at a follow-up Ministerial Conference in Yerevan in 2005.


The EAP Task Force promotes the usage of performance indicators. It aims at providing a firm empirical basis to support water sector reform and to monitor progress in this regard, including monitoring progress in achieving the water-related Millennium Development Goals.
