New Workshop on water and sustainable agri-food systems coming up on June 20
The Water Europe – Working Group on “Water and sustainable agri-food systems” is organising the workshop on “Towards the adoption of Regulation 2020/741: Guidance document and approach to risk management”, to be held online, on June 20 from 15:00 to 17:00 pm.
The water resources of the Union are increasingly coming under pressure, leading to water scarcity and a deterioration in water quality. In particular, climate change, unpredictable weather patterns and drought are contributing significantly to the strain on the availability of freshwater, arising from urban development and agriculture.
The Union’s ability to respond to the increasing pressures on water resources could be improved by wider reuse of treated waste water, limiting extraction from surface water bodies and groundwater bodies, reducing the impact of discharge of treated waste water into water bodies, and promoting water savings through multiple uses for urban waste water, while ensuring a high level of environmental protection.
The workshop will inform participants about the Regulation 2020/741 and the white paper on “Possible effects of EU Regulation 2020/741 on minimum requirements for water reuse on the agri-food value chain and strategies for its adoption implementation”.
