This report makes the case for an integrated water management, starting with better implementation of existing legislation. Clean water is a vitally important natural resource,
demanding careful management. It is essential for
life and integral to virtually all economic activities,
including producing food, energy and industrial
outputs. The availability of clean water in sufficient
quantities is not only a prerequisite for human health
and well-being but also essential for freshwater
ecosystems and the many services that they provide.
