World Water Day 2012 – Water Stewardship EURACTIV Workshop

Further to the 2007 European Commission's assessment of water scarcity and drought in the EU, the executive presented a set of policy options to increase water savings and to improve financing in existing sectoral policies. Five years later, the Commission is expected to table a 'Blueprint to Safeguard Europe's Water'.
In advance of World Water Day 2012, Fondation EURACTIV is pleased to invite you to a roundtable debate to explore answers to these questions.
