The 5th European Water Conference aims to present and discuss progress in the implementation of EU water legislation. The event is jointly organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for the Environment and the forthcoming Austrian EU Presidency.

The Commission's implementation report on the second River Basin Management Plans and the first Flood Risk Management Plans, and the European Environment Agency's State of Water Report are due to be published during the second quarter of 2018, and will serve as a basis for the discussions at the Water Conference.  The Conference will also include a session dedicated to the forthcoming evaluation of EU water policy.

 The Conference will serve as a platform for consultation and debate between Member States, stakeholders, the European Commission, the European Environment Agency and other EU institutions about the findings of the different water-related reports.  It will also provide a valuable opportunity to learn from each other's experiences in view of the next water planning cycles.
