Water and agriculture are both essential for life. However, agriculture has a huge impact on the quality of our water resources.

The European Commission’s proposal for the new Common Agricultural Policy must protect our valuable drinking water resources. It can do so by incorporating measure such as cross-compliance, the polluter pays principle and clear enforceable environment targets in the new proposal.
