The EIB approved EUR 177 million of new long-term investment to improve water supply, wastewater treatment and flood protection in Kosovo, Belarus and the Netherlands.

In Kosovo, the EIB will support a project to ensure that all wastewater from the fourth largest city, Gjilan, is treated.

EIB finance will also be used to upgrade water and wastewater services in Belarus, and improve the treatment of drinking water that currently exceeds internationally accepted levels of iron content.

In the Netherlands, in cooperation with NWB Bank, the EIB will support new investment by regional water authorities to improve flood protection and water management. The initiative will help to adapt existing infrastructure to a changing climate as outlined in the national Delta Programme.
