The ICPDR in cooperation with IAWD and the World Bank organizes the "International Workshop on Wastewater Management in the Danube river Basin", which will take place on 28-29 November 2017 in Bucharest, Romania. The event is hosted by the National Administration “Romanian Waters” and supported by the Danube Water Program, the EUSDR PA4, the Global Water Partnership, the EIB, both Directorates General ENV and JRC of the European Commission.
The workshop aims at bringing together the administration (national and local authorities) and utility sectors together with all relevant stakeholders for joint discussions on the following three pillars: Investment & Financing, Management & Operation and Innovation & Technology. The anticipated goal of the workshop is to achieve a clear concept of the roles and responsibilities for all stakeholders involved and to identify the necessary further steps towards sustainable management of wastewater infrastructure and services. Moreover, the workshop will provide the participants with a platform to identify, share and discuss best practices and cost-efficient solutions in wastewater management.
