Public Hearings to the draft national targets of the Protocol on Water and Health  were held on 21 October. The event took place in Kyiv’s hotel “Bratislava” . The Public Hearings completed the public consultation process on the targets that were initiated by the NGO “MAMA-86” in early September 2010.

The hearings were attended by 36 representatives from public organizations and central public authorities responsible for implementation of the requirements of the Protocol. Thanks to these measures the public had an opportunity to become aware of the proposed targets for Ukraine, to provide comments and discuss feedback from stakeholders.

The results of Public Hearings were be presented 10 November 2010 at the Fourth Meeting of the Steering Group of Senior level of the National Political Dialogue on integrated water resources management in Ukraine.

Public Hearings were held with the support of the Women for Water Partnership (the Netherlands) and with financial assistance of the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment of the Netherlands and the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC).
