Workshop on Regional EU Accession Cross-support in the Water Sector

28-29 September 2015, Zagreb, Croatia

In late September 2015, the World Bank convened a workshop to develop more knowledge on the requirements and challenges of EU the accession process in the water sector among responsible ministries and water agencies in the Danube region.

The process of EU integration and consequent requirement for harmonization with EU water directives represents a driving factor of change in water sector throughout the Danube region. Due to the political and economic diversity among countries in the region, there is a wide difference in current EU membership status between individual countries. Since almost all DWP participating countries which are still not EU members have declared their objective toward EU membership, there is a need to build knowledge on requirements and consequences of EU integration for the water sector, using the knowledge that already exist among EU member countries from the region.
