The Danube Hub

The Danube Hub is operated by IAWD and delivers the D-LeaP foundation programs, i.e. Utility Benchmarking Program and the Utility Management Training, on regional level in english language. IAWD has established the Danube Hub to support capacity building and the sharing of knowledge and experience among its members and other utilities located in the Danube region.

Utility Benchmarking Program

While the Utility Benchmarking Program (UBP) originally started on national and subregional level with Hubs established in Bulgaria, Ukraine and Kosovo (for both Kosovo and Albania) several years ago, the roll-out of the UBP in the Danube Hub started in 2017 and allows for collecting and comparing performance indicators among utilities of similar size and conditions in the Danube region.
