EEA report Water resources across Europe — confronting water scarcity and drought (2009)

Description

This report provides an up-to-date assessment of water resources across Europe with the key objectives of: a) describing spatial patterns and trends in water availability and abstraction, identifying those regions subject to the greatest water stress and the detrimental impacts that ensue; b) increasing awareness of the challenges of water scarcity and drought and the need for a fundamental shift to a more demand-led and therefore sustainable approach to water resource management; c) illustrating good practice across all relevant economic sectors with respect to demand-led sustainable water resource management; d) exploring the quality of current information on water availability and water use and thereby identifying gaps in knowledge.
