EWA Seminar: A Guide to the EU Water Policy

Date 26.11.2018
Location Brussels, Belgium

A Guide to EU Water Policy

Water and the Environment have an increased impact in the European Union. According to a new Eurobarometer survey (Special Survey 416 from September 2014), almost all Europeans say that protecting the environment is important to them personally, and over half say it is very important. Half or more of Europeans say that they are worried about air pollution and water pollution, while over four in ten are worried about the impact on health from chemicals in everyday products and the growing amount of waste.  Over three-quarters of respondents feel that environmental problems have a direct effect on their daily lives. An understanding of legal basis, context and decision-taking mechanisms are thus of increasing importance for policy makers and planners at all levels.

This seminar will give you  a general overview of the EU water policy. As it is an interactive seminar with the possibility to ask questions concerning the policy relating to your country in particular. Ample time is planned for discussions.

An understanding of legal basis, context and decision-taking mechanisms are thus of increasing importance for policy makers and planners at all levels.

We would like to follow up on the success and invite you to attend the EU Policy Seminar!

Dr. Helmut Blöch, the former head of the Water unit at DG Environment, will be leading this seminar and will introduce the participants to all aspects of EU Water Policy.
