Sector Regulation Support

The objective of this activity is to develop the regulatory capacity of WSS sector regulatory agencies by providing access to first-rate regulatory expertise and by facilitating the exchange of ideas and best practices among the agencies.

While the Danube region has many regulatory agencies, most regulators in the region are relatively new, having been created in the last 10 years. All of them recognize the value of learning from their respective experiences, as well as from more experienced regulators. The Danube Water Program is playing an important role in bringing the agencies together through a series of dedicated workshops and side meetings. In addition, the Program is also reaching out to established regulatory networks, such as the Public Utility Regulation Center (PURC), the Energy Regulator Regional Association (ERRA) and the Water Regulators Group (WAREG) to promote the involvement of Danube region regulators in those good practice networks.
