The 8th World Water Forum was held in Brazil a few days ago. What’s ironic is that the more than nine thousand of us attending this Forum were discussing water-related issues in a city of three million grappling with a severe water shortage. After checking in at my hotel, the first thing I found in my room was a notice from the Government informing guests of this crisis and recommending ways to reduce water use. We recently learned of the predicament in Cape Town, South Africa, which was on the verge of running out of this essential liquid—a plight facing many cities around the world.

The objective of this study is to assess specific issues in Danube Basin region regarding: (i) implementation, (ii) outcomes; and (iii) sustainability (mostly from the point of view of affordability) of the UWWTD in the Danube Region. While the study will primarily base its assessment in the experience of current EU members countries within the Danube River Basin in the directive implementation, the work is expected to also benefit EU candidates and potential candidate countries from the region (meaning almost all other countries of the region). In this first stage, the study will not seek to answer all of those questions conclusively, but rather to provide sufficient elements needed to initiate an in depth discussion on achievement and appropriateness of UWWT directive implementation in DRB. In parallel, the study will also seek to document specific good practices that might show how to improve implementation efficiency.
