Monitor, Prevent, Remedy: A green recovery must include smart water management to build an inclusive and resilient Europe

OECD serie on tackling COVID 19, Pernille Weiss, EU parliament

The COVID-19 pandemic is a wake-up call stressing the importance of a strong water sector that provides the right quantity and quality of water for everyone. Water is an essential but limited resource for our environment, industry and citizens. The post-pandemic world needs a new paradigm towards a Water-Smart Society, from crisis management to risk management and prevention in Europe and beyond. It is the only sustainable way to implement a full green recovery and build a resilient Europe for its citizens.
