High-level Expert meeting on Gaza Desalination Facility Project
8 October 2015 – EIB Brussels Office – Rond-Point Schuman 6, B-1040 Brussels, Belgium
In line with the agreed roadmap of the Gaza Strip Desalination Facility project, the Secretariat of the UfM is organising a High-level Expert Meeting to discuss the project’s design, governance and financial arrangements. This meeting will take place next 8 October in Brussels, with the participation of the Palestinian government.
2015 presents a clear opportunity and momentum to liaise more closely with partners and governments in an effort to achieve tangible progress. The way forward passes through the mobilisation of funding, the clear financial and political commitment by different stakeholders, the elaboration of a financial mechanism and the set-up of dedicated, cross-sectorial implementation and supervisions structure.
The main objective of this meeting is to review and agree on the technical components of the project and discuss the financial model and the future mechanisms. Participants will also discuss the next steps, in particular those concerning the UfM Donors Meeting, expected to take place in 2016.
