This project consisted of the drafting and implementation of an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) strategy funded by the World Bank and in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture. In view of the country’s EU candidate status, the strategy also incorporated the EU’s Water Framework Directive, as reflected in the Law on Water Resources.
This IWRM strategy included: surface and underground water assessment; an assessment of legal and regulatory elements in water management; undertaking basin and national-level workshops; preparation of a capacity-building and training proposal; and organization of a stockholders forum.
