Associated Partner 15

The Global Water Partnership Central and Eastern Europe (GWP CEE), established in 1998, is an international network open to all organizations involved in water resources management: government institutions, professional associations, research institutions, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

 The GWP vision is for a water secure world. Its mission is to advance governance and management of water resources for sustainable and equitable development. GWP was created to foster the implementation of integrated water resources management.

GWP CEE is a part of global network that consists of thirteen regions: Caribbean, Central Africa, Central America, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Caucasus, China, Eastern Africa, Mediterranean, South America, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Southern Africa and West Africa. The GWP Secretariat is located in Stockholm in Sweden.

GWP CEE’s international network comprises 12 Country Water Partnerships in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine and more than 170 Partner organizations.

GWP CEE will contribute to the PROLINE-CE outputs and results with knowledge and best practices from partner countries in the field of sustainable land-use practices in recharge areas for drinking water protection, focusing on solutions based on ecosystem. This will be achieved by indirect communication (e-mails, Skype meetings) during the project and direct communication at the PROLINE-CE events. GWP expects benefits from the main PROLINE-CE objective with facilitating implementation of developed methodology, best practices, policy recommendations and recommendations for organisational structures (e.g. water suppliers) within its partnership and vice versa, in order to guarantee sustainable drinking water supply.
