The activity aimed at enhancing their capacities in the planning and implementation of wastewater treatment infrastructure projects.

A consortium led by IRDEngineering is implementing the project WATSAN Republika Srpska, a contract co-financed by the EIB and the EU that aims at enhancing various water infrastructure schemes in 32 municipalities in this Entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Within this project, IRD has recently organized a study tour to Italy, where a Delegation from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water and the Agency for Water had the opportunity to learn further about the Italian experience in the organization and management of wastewater collection and treatment services. Among other activities, the group visited ACEA (water utility in Rome) and Gran Sasso Acqua (water utility company in L’Aquia).

We would like to thank ACEA, Gran Sasso Acqua, C.&S. Di Giuseppe Ingegneri Associati, as well as other involved institutions and individuals, for their generous support in the organization of this study tour.
