‘The EU Water Initiative at 15: origins, processes and assessment’, by Adelle & Benson, 20.06.2017

GovInn’s Senior Researcher Camilla Adelle published together with David Benson the article ‘The EU Water Initiative at 15: origins, processes and assessment‘ in the journal Water International.

This article examines the activities and achievements of the European Union Water Initiative, a transnational, multi-actor partnership established in 2002 by the European Commission to support water governance reforms around the world. Two regional components of the initiative – (a) Africa and (b) Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia – are studied with a focus on their organizational structures, activities, policies and achievements. The analysis provides evidence for improved regional dialogue and cooperation in the water sector, but also points to persistent weaknesses, in particular a lack of resources, ownership and mutual understanding as to the overall aims of the Initiative.
