The Action Plan is focusing on a wider approach including water management, treatment, reuse, circular economy and every water-related area, and all other relevant areas where ICT can contribute. It proposes the creation of a borderless Digital Single Market for water services, and contributes to the Connected Digital Single Market and the Resilient Energy Union objectives by promoting sustainable smart technologies in the water sector.

In the same way ICTs have a high capacity to overcome some of the challenges faced in the water sector, the vision is to support and develop ICT as a key enabler in an integrated way.

During the event a list of concreate actions, including challenges and proposed implementation tools, relevant for boosting the uptake of ICT in the water sector across different domains within a 2030 timeframe were discussed and improved.
