In a letter to EU Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, Aqua Publica Europea has urged the European Commission to keep an ambitious development policy in the water domain for the next programming period. In particular, we stressed the importance of supporting water operators partnership as an effective tool to improve access to water and sanitation in less developed countries.

In his response, Commissioner Piebalgs states that water will be an important domain of intervention. However, he also recognises that the next development policy will focus mainly on agriculture and energy.

Aqua Publica Europea will keep working for promoting water as an essential domain of intervention for development policy at European and international level.
