The European Water Association calls for action in its new Water Manifesto

With its new Water Manifesto, the European Water Association (EWA) draws attention to current challenges for water management in Europe and makes proposals for sustainable solutions to these. EWA calls upon civil society and all relevant stakeholders to contribute to implementation of such solutions, and EWA encourages the permanent dialogue between the decision makers and the national and regional authorities.

Responsible for the development of the EWA Water Manifesto 2020 is the EWA European Policy Committee, which has experts from numerous European countries. Chair of the EWA European Policy Committee is Wendy Francken from VLARIO in Belgium, who in this short video presents the new Water Manifesto:
