News Improving Water Investment Policies in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean

UfM member states have jointly developed the UfM Water Agenda as a regional policy response to the high priority of water issues in the Mediterranean. In 2017 the UfM Ministerial Meeting on Water mandated the development of a regional Water Agenda and a companion Financial Strategy. The UfM Water Agenda is structured around four pillars: ensuring universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); increasing the climate-resilience of Mediterranean economies; supporting balanced development across the water-energy-food-environment nexus; and contributing to address social concerns, with a focus on employment and migration. The UfM Financial Strategy for Water lays out a menu of options to increase the financial sustainability of the Mediterranean water sector – including making the best use of existing financial resources, and mobilising additional financial resources. Each member state is responsible for adapting and implementing the regional agenda at the national level.
