Oecd euwi+ overview

  1. 1. 1 REGIONAL TRENDS AND OVERVIEW European Union Water Initiative Plus for Eastern Partnership (EUWI+) 6 July 2021
  2. 2. 2 • Legislative reforms - moving towards alignment with EU acquis and good practice • Institutional reforms to harmonise roles and responsibilities still require strengthening • Regulatory reforms to promote efficient water resource use and improve water quality • Technical standards and norms progressed to promote efficiency • Progress made under MEAs including the Protocol on Water and Health and SDGs • Strategic and mid-term planning progressed, though remains fragmented • Improved monitoring and access of data for decision making • Strengthened capacity with river basin management planning PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN ALL COUNTRIES SINCE 2016
  3. 3. 3 CHALLENGES REMAIN • Implementation of river basin principle • Despite progress, some countries manage water resources according to administrative- territorial principles • Many EaP countries still lack capacities to develop RBMPs without external support • Progress in adoption of RBMPs can be slow, high costs and challenges to secure government funding can prevent implementation of adopted RBMPs • Advancement of institutional arrangements in basins (RBOs, RBCs) • Not all EaP countries have RBOs and RBCs in place, and where established and functioning, significant capacity building is needed • Continued support to establishment of sustainable functioning of RBOs/RBCs is needed • Requirements under AAs and CEPA • Despite progress achieved, more needs to be done, AAs and CEPA contain ambitious and time-bound commitments • There is a clear need to accelerate action to achieve targets and timeline • Fragmentation around policy making exists • Impacts strategic planning, forecasting and budgeting • Conflicting frameworks and overlapping needs can lead to over estimation of costs • Need for coherent cross-sectoral plans and sustainable financing • Role of National Policy Dialogues will be key during the next phase of reforms
  4. 4. 4 DYNAMICS OF PUBLIC BUDGET ALLOCATIONS TO WATER SECTOR • Financing remains a major challenge in EaP countries. Around 0.4% of GDP is spent on water (e.g. in EU, over 1.2% of GDP is spent on WSS and irrigation (not counting monitoring and other costs)) • Public budget allocations show declining trend even before COVID • Risk to sustained public budget allocations to water sector
  5. 5. 5 PUBLIC BUDGETS ARE UNDER PRESSURE WHILE INVESTMENT NEEDS ARE INCREASING Comparison of the average annual allocations to water sector in the period 2011-2020 and the required additional annual investments in the period of 2021-2030 (Eur/capita)
  6. 6. 6 INVESTMENT NEEDS ESTIMATES ARE STILL INCOMPLETE AND REQUIRES COHERENT PLANNING Required additional annual investments in the period of 2021-2030 in EaP countries according to sub-sectors, (EUR/per capita)
  7. 7. 7 WATER TARIFFS AND AFFORDABILITY • Tariffs for WSS and irrigation still remain low, typically not covering O&M costs • Reforming tariffs often faces political resistance • Increased affordability constraints, especially as a result of the pandemic • Artificially low water tariffs can hurt vulnerable communities, preventing infrastructure development and the provision of reliable public services in rural areas • Targeted social measures, supporting low income groups, instead of trying to ensuring cheap water for all
  8. 8. 8 • Considerable progress made under EUWI+ • Challenges remain including to meet fixed deadlines and commitments that are fast approaching • Instability remains a feature • Public budget under increasing pressure • Policy coherence will be key: • Strategic cross-sectoral planning • Development of prioritised investment programmes • Sustainable financing including the use of economic instruments • Role of National Policy Dialogues can be strengthened • Opportunity to “operationalise” EUWI+ outcomes as this work moves to its next phase LESSONS LEARNED
