(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, AUGUST 02 - Five countries will be involved in the first phase of the water governance project of the Union for the Mediterranean: Lebanon, Tunisia, Jordan, Albania and Palestinian Territories.

According to the Enpi website (www.enpi-info.eu), the project entitled 'Overcoming governance challenges to the mobilisation of financing for the Mediterranean water sector', has an overall budget of 2 million euros, with the financial support of the European Investment Bank. The promoters and the UfM Secretariat will mobilise other donors for the remaining financing needs.

The project, to run over three years, is promoted jointly by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Global Water Partnership- Mediterranean (GWP-Med), and will build on earlier work jointly carried out by the GWP-Med and the OECD in Egypt (completed), Lebanon (completed) and Tunisia (in progress). Stemming from an initial assessment, it will provide a diagnosis of the key governance and capacity building bottlenecks in the different countries that impede the financing and of the mechanisms to overcome them, in the form of a set of operational guidance and a compendium of good practices.
