|Access to good quality water is fundamental to our daily lives and to most economic activities. Yet water scarcity and droughts are becoming major challenges throughout the world, including Europe.
In its Communication on Water Scarcity and Droughts issued a year ago, the European Commission put a priority on using water more efficiently through a combination of technology and policy developments.
On 5 September, Expo Zaragoza 2008 will host a European Day on Water Scarcity and Drought. The daylong event will include a presentation of the main issues of the draft follow up report of the Communication, as well as presentations on the experiences of European and non-European countries seriously affected by water scarcity and droughts.
See the complete programme.
Above all, the conference is an opportunity for stakeholders to participate in the water debate and comment on the draft report in advance of final publication at the end of 2008.
This event will take place in the Crown Room - Government of Aragón, Pignatelli Building - Paseo María Agustín 36 - Zaragoza.
