Code of Ethics


The European Water Association promised in The Hague to take the lead on behalf of the Water Associations Worldwide. The result of the last year’s work has now been presented and continued discussion and implementation is on the way in Europe. It has been an interesting project for those of us taking part in the discussions. It has been a useful process trying to formulate and agree on these ethical principles which after all do not bring very much new ideas but first of all bring down on paper formulation of some commonly agreed guidelines for good professional behaviour. It is believed that the contribution of learned, skilled and dedicated individuals is crucial to the achievement of a healthy environment and thriving community. Our behaviour as water professionals should serve as example to the community as part of our contribution to a sustainable environment.
