Towards a blueprint to safeguard Europe’s waters

The EU has already developed for some time a fully fledged water policy that has gradually shifted from addressing mainly health concerns, such as quality of drinking water, to the environmental impacts of major water using sectors like agriculture, industry and households. Since 2000, with the adoption of the Water Framework Directive, water policy has made another step-change taking an integrated approach on the basis of the concept of river basin management aimed at achieving good status of all EU waters by 2015. However, the achievement of EU water policy goals is far from secured due to a number of old and emerging challenges including water abstraction for agriculture and energy production, land use, hydromorphological changes, climate change impacts, etc.
