EU4Environment Water and Data: Regional Workshop and Site Visit






The EU4Environment Water & Data Programme gathered in Vienna on the 28 and 29 June to take part in a Regional Workshop on Facilitating the financing of water and environmental resilience in the Eastern Partnership Countries, followed by a day of site visits to see Nature-based Solutions in action around Vienna.

Held back-to-back with the Second Regional Action Group Meeting, which monitored progress on programme implementation, the workshop provided a space for dialogue on finance for building water and environmental resilience, with participation from EaP countries, EU Member States active in the EaP region, and International Financial Institutions.

Participants in the Regional Workshop and Site Visits had the chance to:

  1. Exchange on the challenges and opportunities for financing water and environmental improvements in the EaP countries, as well as the goals of the EU’s Economic and Investment Plan (EIP) towards environmental resilience.
  2. Discuss the implementation of River Basin Management Plans, the potential for new technologies and approaches including Nature-based Solutions, and the opportunities presented by a “Team Europe" approach to the water and zero pollution thematic.
  3. Join experts from the Environment Agency Austria (UBA) on a full day of site visits to learn about EU good practices and how Nature-based Solutions can be effectively implemented.
