Project support: UNECE
Project coordinator: Margit Säre; margit@ ctc.ee
National Policy Dialogues (NPD) on integrated water resources management and water supply and sanitation is the main operational instrument of the European Union Water Initiative (EUWI) Component for Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA). The UNECE is a strategic partner in the EUWI for the Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). The UNECE-supported NPDs IWMR provide practical assistance to strengthen integrated water resources management in the EECCA countries in line with the principles for IWRM as outlined in the UNECE Water Convention, the Protocol on Water and Health, the EU Water Framework Directive and other relevant EU directives. The programme requires an adequate communication and dissemination of the information about its activities and results.
The specific goal of the activity under this grant are to prepare the NPD IWRM programme communication and dissemination strategy for the period of 2010 – 2012 and implement a number of communication and dissemination activities that were started by the Programme Manager.
