Water Erasmus

The following questionnaire is aimed at mapping APE members’ priority projects, best practices, and knowledge needs. Information collected will be used to promote knowledge exchange and partnerships among members through different initiatives: Water Erasmus, but also Working Groups and thematic Sessions. By pooling together competences that are distributed across the APE network, the objective is to strengthen the role of APE as a “water academy” for the benefit of all members.

The answers you provide to this questionnaire will be collected and then organized/summarized within the framework of the four thematic priorities identified in the new APE strategy approved at the last General Meeting:

1) Efficient management for environmental and urban sustainability
2) Right to water and sustainable financing
3) Transparent and Accountable water services
4) Water security and quality

While this form is only available in English, you may also answer in French, Spanish or Italian.
