Summary/Abstract: Water is required for human endeavours as well as for the sustenance of the environment.Access thereto as well as, more broadly, the issues of the management of water resources are therefore growingly perceived worldwide as a new type of security issues, fundamental problems that human communities have to address capably in order to be resilient to the challenges they face.Reconciling different uses of water resources such as drinking water and sanitation, agriculture, food production, industry and energy, are major water security challenges in the Eastern European countries as have already been and still are prominent concerns in their EU partners. Some international rivers shared by a few of the Eastern European partners of the EU in particular are already mentioned in international security documents produced by relevant international organisations as hotspots for likely difficulties in the organization of riverine communities and the international relations of the States involved. It seems undeniable that tensions and conflicts over access to water and its quality are likely to become more frequent and could endanger stability and security in the Eastern European region, as happens in other parts of the world.
