About this initiative


The Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) is the most comprehensive instrument of EU water policy and its main objective is to protect and enhance EU water resources to achieve good status. The fitness check will evaluate this Directive, two other Directives directly linked to it (Directive 2006/118/EC on Groundwater and 2008/105/EC on Quality Standards) and the Floods Directive (2007/60/EC), which has been the catalyst for introducing a risk management approach to water floods across the EU.
