Creating a more resilient and sustainable future will require Europe to reimagine its economic model, according to a new European Environment Agency (EEA) report. The report “Reflecting on green growth: Creating a resilient economy within environmental limits” highlights opportunities for Europe to go further in creating an economy that can deliver prosperity and sustainability.

The water-related elements identified in the report are:

Also mentioned by Sponar in the PAC meeting.
