GOVERNMENT: Water Projects Multi-annual Programmes
The government adopted multi-annual programmes, which are determined according to individual projects, and their corresponding implementation periods, implementation participants, investment and financing sources for the construction of water facilities for flood protection, irrigation, water and waste water utility projects.
Approximately €1 billion will be invested into flood protection projects by 2022, with a significant portion of this amount to be provided from EU Funds.

Water supply and waste water utility projects will be provided with €3.7 billion in financing by 2023, with 70-85% to be financed from EU Funds.
