The Water and Environment Support (WES) is a regional project designed to contribute to the implementation of an integrated approach to pollution reduction and prevention, in line with the Union for the Mediterranean agendas and the Barcelona Convention.

WES is also meant to contribute to a more efficient management of scarce water resources in the ENI Southern Neighbourhood region.

The project aims to do so by increasing the capacity of stakeholders that are involved in pollution reduction and water management and support them in formulating and implementing the environmental and water policies.

WES supports the shift to a more sustainable consumption and production model, promotes an integrated and efficient management of water, combats plastic pollution and marine litter and fosters dialogue on key environmental and sustainable development issues. In this way, WES also supports mutual understanding, cooperation and peace in the region.

The project will also focus on strengthening the efficient use of water  in urban and rural areas,  the appropriate treatment of waste water to allow for its use/re-use, as well as the cost-recovery and affordability of water services .

WES is covering Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Lybia, Palestine* and Tunisia.
