Welcome to the Clean Water Initiative
At the heart of progress lies the vital resource that sustains life itself: water. The Clean Water Initiative, a collaborative effort between She-ERA, UN agencies, local municipalities, and the European Union, is dedicated to enhancing water quality and promoting sustainable water management practices.
Through an array of projects and initiatives, we are striving to make a meaningful impact on communities in the Dukagjin Region.
The Clean Water Initiative is a dynamic partnership committed to safeguarding water resources, revitalizing ecosystems, and empowering communities. Through innovative projects and collaborative efforts, we aim to ensure access to clean and safe water for present and future generations.
