Topics of discussion:
• Legislative initiatives and state policy in the field of water resources management
• Are there any real results in the reform of legislation in the field of wastewater management?
• What legislative reforms are needed in the area of the permit system for special water use?
• Formation of state policy in the field of sanitary legislation
• Has the change in legislation become a key factor in environmental situation improvement?
In particular:
- transfer of regulation of special water use to regional sectors of the State Agency of Water Resources;
- absence of a normative document on standardization of discharges and separate documentation of the Maximum Permissible Discharge;
- the absence in the legislation of a mechanism to stimulate recycling and consistent water supply;
- insignificant punishment for illegal wastewater discharges.
• Effectiveness of the current water body monitoring system
• Are there any problems in the practical application of the "Rules for the admission of wastewater to sewerage systems", which entered into force on 02.02.2018
• Tariff regulation in the reform of communal sector of Ukraine
• What should be the mechanism of state and public control over the observance of environmental standards, sanitary standards?
• The main reason for the lack of investment attractiveness of water industry in Ukraine – is imperfect legislation, non-transparent ownership structure or lack of qualified personnel?
• Has the River Basin Management Plan become the main document for achieving the strategic environmental goal - good water quality?
• What needs to be done by the central and regional authorities to improve the efficiency of activities in the field of wastewater treatment, use, protection and renewal of water resources?
