The Danube Water Program (DWP) is a lighthouse example for regional cooperation in the water sector in the Danube region, which extends into the territories of 19 countries and hosts the most international river basin in the world. The DWP brings together regional, national and local stakeholders in the water supply and sanitation sector.
The aim of this side event is to highlight experiences and best practice examples from two countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina) of the DWP and to present, how these activities contribute to SDG 6 implementation. It will discuss approaches and the lessons learnt for successful regional cooperation to achieve smart policies, strong utilities and sustainable water services in the Danube region and to make them applicable in other regions of the world for green, resilient and inclusive water service delivery.
