A four-day online conference organised by Slovenia and the European Commission Directorate-General for International Partnerships kicked off under the title Water and Beyond: EU Transformative Approaches for International Partnerships.

The event focuses on water diplomacy, one of the priorities for Slovenia’s upcoming EU presidency. Water must be inserted systemically and comprehensively into all aspects and forms of the EU’s external action, said Stanislav Raščan, a state secretary at Slovenia’s Foreign Ministry.
