EU Water Initiative
  • The EUWI is an ambitious commitment to help
    achieve the MDG and WSSD targets on water and
    sanitation.
  • A premise of the EUWI is that more could be
    achieved if the EU MS, partner countries and
    other donors, could better harmonise their
    practices. As the EU collectively provides
    around 1.4 billion annually to water and
    sanitation, this has the potential to generate
    significant results on the ground.
  • Through the EU Water Initiative and the 500m
    ACP-EU Water Facility, the EU is demonstrating
    its commitment to providing more, new, resources
    to poverty reduction through improved management
    of water and increased access to water and
    sanitation.

9
EU Water Initiative
  • Key elements
  • Reinforce political commitment to action
  • Promote better water governance arrangements
  • Improve co-ordination co-operation
  • Encourage regional and sub-regional co-operation
    on water management
  • Catalyse additional funding

FP7
  • The 7th Framework Programme is tailored to better
    meet industrys needs
  • Where industrially relevant, definition of work
    programmes will draw on the strategic research
    agendas developed by industry-led technology
    platforms. These strategic research agendas,
    presenting the European dimension of research
    challenges, also influence national research
    programmes. Furthermore, by always looking at the
    market potential of new inventions, they help to
    overcome Europes weakness in commercialising
    the results of research.
