EaP Region


With support from the European Union (EU), its Member States, and other donors, water management in the Eastern Partner Countries has started to integrate climatic, environmental, economic and social considerations. 

Several EaP countries are in the process of aligning their water sector policies and practices with those of the European Union water-related directives and other multilateral Environmental Agreements (UN Water Convention, Sustainable Development Goals).  Component 1 of the EU4Environment – Water and Resources programme focuses on Water Resources Management. It refers to the improvement of existing regulatory and institutional frameworks, the improved application or introduction of economic instruments, improvement of water monitoring, better use of water-related data for informed decision-making, river basin management planning and implementation 

In Eastern partner countries, persistent monitoring capacity gaps prevent effective colelction of data on environment. Challenges also remain in producing environmental indicators, including the UNECE environmental indicators and Sustainable Development Goals, and making the information available.  Component 2 of the EU4Environment – Water and Data programme aims to increase the availability of environmental data and information through public portals, in order to make policy-relevant data available to decision-makers and citizens in the Eastern Partner countries.
