The Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform is organising a webinar to showcase the central role of the water management sector in the shift to a circular economy and the achievement of EU environmental objectives.
The vital role of water management is widely reflected in the new EU rules on water reuse in agriculture. Which are expected to lead to an increase in the safe use of reclaimed wastewater for agricultural irrigation purposes, thereby alleviating the huge farming-related pressure on European water bodies. Moreover, the initiatives kicked-off lately by the new Circular Economy Action Plan to align urban wastewater legislation with the ambition of the European Green Deal are also likely to require the water management sector to step up its efforts to fully exploit its sustainability and circularity potential.
This webinar offers local and regional policy makers as well as water service operators insights into the EU latest policy developments on water at the crossroads between circular economy, climate adaptation and nature protection. It will also explore successful regional policies to overcome barriers to water reuse in agriculture and incentivize reuse in industrial processes.
