On 3 November 2020 an online meeting took place to discuss the progress in developing a Water Supply and Sanitation Master Plan for the Nirnova sub-basin.  The aim of this strategic plan at local level is to facilitate the implementation of concrete solutions to improve access to safe water for the rural population of the Nirnova sub-basin (358km², 30 villages, and almost 44,000 inhabitants in total).

The master plan is being developed in the frame of the European Union Water Initiative Plus, with active support from OiEau (International Office for Water, France) and the input of International Secretariat for Water – Solidarity Water Europe to facilitate local governance strengthening.

32 participants to the online meeting

The online meeting was attended by 32 participants, including presidents from both Moldovan raïons (districts) concerned (Nisporeni and Hincesti), the 18 municipal mayors, and experts from OiEau, and the International Secretariat for Water – Solidarity Water Europe.

This inclusive meeting aimed at encouraging exchanges between water experts and local decision-makers in order to better adapt the selected orientation for implementing the measures with local stakeholders.

New inter-municipal association projected

The new inter-municipal association projected, which would be financed by the combined water bill of the 18 municipalities, will boost capacity to manage the future implementation of water services and maintenance of water works.

Since Moldova, like France, features a large number of small municipalities, the French mechanism using inter-municipal association was presented as a possible solution, responding to regional local authorities’ main concern regarding water supply financing and more professional management.
