DANUBIS.org Water Platform

DANUBIS.org stands for Danube Utility Benchmarking and Information Sharing. The DANUBIS.org Water Platform is an online knowledge space of resources for and about water supply and sanitation utilities in Southeast, Eastern, and Central Europe.

The DANUBIS.org Water Platform was launched in May 2014 under the Danube Water Program with the stated objective to “develop a regional, public performance indicator system for WSS utilities in the Danube Region, in order to allow for country and utility performance data comparison”.

DANUBIS.org covers all countries with all or part of their territory within the Danube watershed. At present, information about the following countries is included: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, FYR Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. Even though small parts of their territories lies within the Danube watershed, Germany, Switzerland and Italy are not included in DANUBIS.org as they are not typically associated with the Danube region.

In addition to the performance indicator system, DANUBIS.org serves as an interactive knowledge space for country resources related to the water supply and sanitation sector in Central, Eastern, and Southeast Europe, and for utility resources on topics such as energy efficiency, non-revenue water, benchmarking, and asset management.

On DANUBIS.org, water sector organizations can advertise their events and trainings, making the platform a hub for regional knowledge and information. Selected news articles related to water management and current affairs in the region complement the website.
