Drinking water companies

Water supply and wastewater treatment are organised differently depending on the country even within Europe. These services can be provided by regional authorities, public institutions or private companies with independent regulators. These organisations and institutions are sometimes also responsible for water management in order to prevent floods and droughts.
These companies bring a great deal of experience and knowledge to the projects and can therefore play a key role in fostering concrete actions in this area.
Water companies are generally large organisations. They work together with governments and professional organisations, but may not be able to reach local communities directly.
