The Ukrainian Association of Enterprises of Water Supply and Sewerage Services (UKRVODOKANALEKOLOGIA), EBC Foundation and the Danube Water Program have joined forces to facilitate a benchmarking programme for water- & wastewater utilities in Ukraine. Objective of the programme is to improve water services by benchmarking and learning from each other.
The programme is carried out by the regional benchmarking hub for Ukraine, hosted and coordinated by the Ukrainian Association of Enterprises of Water Supply and Sewerage Services and facilitated by EBC Foundation, with financial support from the Danube Water Program and the Open Regional Fund for Southeast Europe.
In 2015, a first benchmarking exercise under this programme was carried out with eight water- & wastewater utilities. The programme continued in 2016 with fourteen participants and is currently in the draft reporting fase of the third exercise (September, 2017). The ambition is to enlarge the network of utilities that jointly work on improving their services over time.
Utilities that participate get their own, individual company report in which their performance in several areas is compared with other utilities in the group and with the average performance of utilities abroad as a reference. Next to this, meetings and workshops are organised to exchange knowledge and good practices.
The exercise is conducted in English and (partly) in Ukrainian.
