European Policy

EWA with its ETSC and the EPC has a strong technical and EU-policy-oriented structure that ensures that the Association is able to deliver high quality, timely output on a wide range of environmental issues.

EU Water Alliance

The Water Alliance consists of the organisations Aqua Europa, WssTP, EWP, EurEau, EurAqua, netwercH2O, Acquea and EWA

The key European water-related umbrella organisations are jointly asking the Juncker Commission to prioritise water during the next 5 years due to its importance for EU’s economy, environment, and quality of life of the European citizens. These organisations increased their collaboration and coordination in the form of a European Water Alliance, with the objective of achieving a more coherent and thus more effective representation and visibility for water at the European Union level.

In January 2015, the EU Water Alliance wrote letters to EU officials to address the importance of water within the context of the new EC agenda:

Commissioner Carlos Moedas for Research, Science and Innovation

Commissioner Karmenu Vella for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries

Commissioner Phil Hogan for Agriculture and Rural Development

Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs

Commissioner Corina Cretu for Regional Policy

Commissioner Arias Cañete for Climate Action & Energy

Commissioner Günther Oettinger for Digital Economy and Society

Commissioner Neven Mimica for International Cooperation & Development

Commissioner Violeta Bulc for Transport

Commissioner Christos Stylianides for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management
