National Policy Dialogues

What exactly is meant by National Policy Dialogues within the framework of the EUWI-EECCA Component? Or more concretely: What are the objectives, outputs and activities of these? What are the inputs to the dialogues? And how may the National Policy Dialogues be put into action?

National Policy Dialogues have been developed as the main operational instrument to implement the work program of the EUWI-EECCA Component. The overall objectives of National Policy Dialogues are to initiate country-specific activities regarding WSS, Financing Strategies and IWRM to improve regulatory and administrative frameworks, help setting country priorities, and identify projects and develop capacity in the EECCA region through a dialogue that, among others, involves public authorities and representatives of the civil society. Thereby National Policy Dialogues contribute to the development of road maps for achieving the water-related MDGs and IWRM targets.

As an element of the National Policy Dialogues, “policy packages” are developed in the relevant EECCA countries on the basis of country-specific designed joint activities, including those mentioned under the previous paragraph. These activities pay particular attention to policy reforms towards sustainable water management and financing of water supply and sanitation infrastructure developments, including conservation of the environment, water as a polluted natural resource, strengthening regulatory services, and institutional frameworks,. The final outputs of the National Policy Dialogues are implemented “policy packages” addressing one or more of the above-mentioned issues.
