Integrated marine and inland water management
Many forms of human activity put water resources under pressure. Sound management of water resources requires a holistic approach, to simultaneously address challenges related to biodiversity, climate change and pollution.
The programmes in this area contribute to achieve good environmental status in marine and inland waters and meet EU targets on water protection and management.
