Water policy reforms in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia

Water is essential for human life and a healthy environment while playing a key role in economic growth and sustainable development. The GREEN Action Task Force water programme supports policy reforms in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asian countries (EECCA) and implements projects in the region to develop practical reform proposals to strengthen water management.

Our current projects



The EU4Environment Water Resources and Environmental Data programme aims at improving people’s wellbeing in the EU’s Eastern partner countries and enabling their green transformation in line with the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The programme’s activities will be clustered around two specific objectives:

  • Support a more sustainable use of freshwater resources through improved water policies and practices and help reduce the adverse impact of human activities on water quality and ecosystems;
  • Extend and improve the use of sound environmental statistics by the partner countries, and ensure greater availability of policy-relevant data for decision-makers and citizens.
