Event 2nd Regional Conference of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) labelled project Governance & Financing for the Mediterranean Water Sector

The Conference aims to reinforce the regional dialogue, set off during the Launching of the UfM project in May2013, and the sharing of experiences on water governance and sustainable financing by bringing togethertargeted Mediterranean stakeholders from within and outside the water sector, including public authorities,civil society and the private sector. Important for launching the implementation of this regional project has beenthe strategic partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and theEuropean Investment Bank (EIB).

The steady support, already since 2009, of the GEF / UNEP MAPMedPartnership programme and the Mediterranean Component of the EU Water Initiative (MED EUWI) havebeen instrumental for concretising the project’s line of work.

The two-day Conference will take stock of the outcomes from the Water Policy Dialogues conducted in Jordan,Tunisia and Palestine and will discuss the way forward and towards a regional compendium of good practicesfor effective private sector participation. Furthermore, the Conference will capitalise on the ongoing work of thePRPI Group for encouraging bankable projects and investments in the water and environment sectors across theMediterranean.

Synergies with the ongoing work of other actors in the region will be reviewed so as to strengthen the impactand outreach of results on sustainable financing of water infrastructure, including through private sectorinvolvement.
