Implementing the EU Water Framework Directive
Water quality is an important condition for a sustainable future. Not just because the intrinsic value of nature itself but water quality is also important for economic development and a healthy environment in which to live and work. Implementing the European Water Framework Directive into national legislation and national, regional and local policy has been an intensive and time consuming process. We have been actively involved in the organisational design of the implementary traject and have played key-roles in the implementation itself.
