Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The background of the project to which this report contributes is an increasingly widespread concern for freshwater adequacy and availability within the European Community. The project takes in the range of hydrologic, geographic, topographic and climatic conditions in the EC; of infrastructures; of industrial, agricultural and domestic use of freshwater; and of general socio-economic development. It explores RTD options and requirements to achieve a sustainable use and supply of freshwater resources in the Community, and considers the various interactions between water-related RTD and developments in other water-related policy areas, encompassing both water quality and quantity issues. This memorandum represents a synthesis of the outcome of a consultation, held in Lisbon, organised with the view of bringing together, from different parts of the Community, high level decision makers, senior policy advisers and analysts, and technical experts with different backgrounds (environment, agriculture, regional policy, industry) to debate SAST's findings and draft recommendations.
