LIFE's Blueprint for water resources

The European Commission has recently published the "LIFE's Blueprint for water resources". This is a collection of the best LIFE projects that contribute to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD - 2000/60/EC), regarding water quantity, quality, river and wetland restoration and water related agricultural projects.
In particular, this LIFE Focus publication takes an in-depth look at projects targeting five key areas:

  • water quality and quantity;
  • water-related green infrastructure;
  • increasing water efficiency;
  • water re-use;
  • management tools for effective water use.

As its title suggests, LIFE's Blueprint for water resources is a practical companion piece to the recent European Commission Communication, 'The Blueprint to Safeguard Europe's Water Resources'.
