About the European Forum on the Regulation of Water Services

WAREG, the Association of Water and Wastewater Regulators in Europe, is strongly engaged in exchanging best practices and know-how on economic regulation, among national, European and International Institutions, as well as stakeholders, including associations of operators and customers and the broader scientific community.

The 1st EFRWS held in Rome in 2019 was the first multi-stakeholder conference of its kind in Europe. With 50+ speakers and 200+ participants from all over Europe, it was focused on the governance of the drinking water and wastewater sectors, as well as on best practices of efficient cost-recovery, affordable tariffs and promotion of environmental sustainability.

The 2nd EFRWS this year will highlight the green transition targeted by the EU Green Deal, and the actions taken by European Institutions, National and Regional Regulators to improve circular economy‐based activities in the drinking water and wastewater sectors. On this page you will be able to read more information on the thematic panels of the Forum.
