Folder Side event: Water Resources across Europe – confronting Water Scarcity and Drought

 


 

Wednesday 18.03; 17.00 - 18.30; at Sutluce/Kasimpasa 1 Hall

The European Environment Agency (EEA) hosted a side event during the 5th WWF, to further examine the key issues arising from its report Water resources cross Europe - confronting water scarcity and drought launched on 17 March.


Together with several stakeholders, the EEA explored how demand management measures can be promoted and a greater implementation of water-efficient practices realised, as part f a wider goal of sustainable consumption and production. The discussions focused on:

  • to promote demand management measures, on a regional and operational basis
  • increase water use efficiency and saving in the context of the more general efforts to implement sustainable consumption and production across Europe
  • to make use of new technologies and methods to increase water use efficiency e.g. in irrigation, or public water supply
