The Mediterranean Component of the EU Water Initiative (MED EUWI) aims:

  •  to assist design of better, demand driven and result oriented programmes,
  •  to facilitate better coordination of water programmes and projects, aiming at a more effective use of existing funds, and the mobilization of new financial resources, where this is required, based on an analysis of gaps, and,
  • to enhance cooperation for the proper implementation of these programmes and projects, based on peer review and strategic assessment.
