Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform Survey on “The role of regional and local authorities in promoting sustainable water policy”

To address the challenges of water scarcity and drought, water policy must promote efficient and sustainable management of water resources and the local and regional authorities have a role to play in this context.

As the European Commission will carry out a review of EU water policy by 2012 as part of the "Resource Efficiency" Flagship Initiative of the Europe 2020 strategy, the Committee of the Regions will adopt an Outlook Opinion on "The role of regional and local authorities in promoting a sustainable water policy" at its plenary session in June 2011, as requested by the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (Rapporteur: Mr. Nichi Vendola, IT/PES).

To contribute to the preparation of the CoR Opinion, and to feed into the second CoR Monitoring Report on Europe 2020 (to be published in December 2011), the CoR's Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform asks to participate in a survey by answering some questions by 4 March 2011 at the latest in any official EU language, at europe2020@cor.europa.eu.

The survey document and the questions can be found here:
