The 19th meeting of the EU Water Initiative Working Group took place on 12-13 May 2016 at the International Energy Agency Headquarters (IEA) in Paris, France.
It brought together senior officials representing water and environmental authorities from countries of Western and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) as well as international organizations, multilateral and bilateral donors.
The meeting reviewed the implementation of National Policy Dialogues on integrated water resources management and on water supply and sanitation in the region. The discussion focussed on three main components: transboundary cooperation, managing water for green growth, and water-climate-food-energy nexus. The working languages of the meeting were English and Russian (with simultaneous translation).
