River Basin Management Plans

The 6th Annual Conference of the European Water Association

Summary: The 6th EWA Annual Conference hosted a number of Europe's experts on River Basin Management Plans. While the topic sounds very technical and specific - and is! - it has implications for everyone in Europe that lives near or in some way relies upon a river.

We were able to speak to a number of the participants to learn more about European water policy and the Water Framework Directive.

Firstly, we hear from an expert from the WWF policy office in Brussels about the impact that the public can have on water policy.

Secondly, we speak to a farming expert about the impact of water on farming, food prices and then move on to topics like low carbon energy generation and consumption patterns.
