The Living Rivers Europe, a coalition of six environmental and angling organisations (EAA, WWF, EEB, ERN, The Nature Conservancy and Wetlands International), invites you to the launch of the second edition of its report “The Final Sprint for Europe’s Rivers” which will take place on Tuesday 26 October (09:00-10:00 CET).
Europe’s rivers are under threat, with 60% of Europe’s rivers in poor ecological health, unsustainable water use in agriculture, and alarming biodiversity decline. Is Europe really on track to return its fresh waters to health by 2027 as the Water Framework Directive requires?
Member States have only a few months left
to finalise their river basin management plans for the next six years. Join us to hear about the analysis of 21 drafts of River Basin Management Plans in 11 EU Member States. Our guest speakers will share their conclusions and the necessary actions to ensure the final sprint towards the 2027 deadline is successful.
