Water framework directive: deadlines for consultation extended!

  • environment

You have one more week to help the European Commission decide if the Water Framework Directive and sister directives are 'fit for purpose'.

The European Commission's consultation on the Water Framework directive will remain open until 11 March. It is available on http://bit.ly/2GYBqxx.

In addition to this, the Commission is launching a series of questionnaires to get more specific input from stakeholders. The questionnaires are available here: http://bit.ly/2GZrlAt and open until 29 March. Following the end of the consultation period, the European Commission will hold a series of follow-up interviews with some stakeholders. 

We encourage city authorities to answer both surveys as they will feed into the evaluation of the Water framework directive.

In the next month, EUROCITIES will work on compiling a common EUROCITIES position on the directive. If you would like to contribute to this process, please get in touch with claire.baffert@eurocities.eu. If your city has sent an answer to the public consultation and/or questionnaires, please also feel free to share it with us.
