Corporate nameEuropean Union / European Parliament
Subject headingsSustainable development ; Natural resources ; Water management ; Water resources ; Environmental policy
Today, serious threats are hanging over water and sustainable development in general. The European Union has set itself the goal of hedging its bets for the future by acting positively on a European and global scale. Our efforts concern a large number of action areas such as research, transport and energy, agriculture, regional development and development co-operation. With permanent objectives such as the conservation, protection and good management of water, but also more generally action on climate change, our aim is to reconcile social and economic development with environmental protection. When it is a matter of safeguarding the future, every drop counts
