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.
