Main priorities for Water under the Junckers Commission 2014-2019

Abs: The key European water-related umbrella organisations are jointly asking the Juncker Commission to prioritise water during the next 5 years due to its importance for EU’s economy, environment, and quality of life of the European citizens. The first result of this cooperation is a joint ask to the Juncker Commission identifying key priorities for water. Its purpose is to promote a more informed and structured policymaking discourse on these matters, as well as to inspire members of the European Parliament to raise the importance of water with the Commissioners-designate in forthcoming hearings.

City Blueprints Baseline Assessments of Sustainable Water Management in 11 Cities of the Future

Abs: The necessity of Urban Water Cycle Services (UWCS) adapting to future stresses calls for changes that take sustainability into account. Megatrends (e.g. population growth, water scarcity, pollution and climate change) pose urgent water challenges in cities. In a previous paper, a set of indicators, i.e., the City Blueprint has been developed to assess the sustainability of UWCS (Van Leeuwen et al., Wat Resour Manage 26:2177–2197, 2012). In this paper this approach has been applied in 9 cities and regions in Europe (Amsterdam, Algarve, Athens, Bucharest, Hamburg, Reggio Emilia, Rotterdam, Oslo and Cities of Scotland) and in 2 African cities in Angola (Kilamba Kiaxi) and Tanzania (Dar es Salaam).
