Region Profile: Climate, Geography, Socio-Economic Context

The world’s wealthiest region is not immune to waterrelated problems. The members of the European Union are making efforts to implement the strict rules and high standards imposed by various directives, including the Water Framework Directive, which poses special challenges even for the most industrially advanced. While various climate change scenarios project reduced rainfall, especially in the Mediterranean basin, overall water quantity does not appear to be an immediate concern. The issues highest on national agendas are usually flooding, water quality and ecosystem protection.
