OBJECTIVES

The definition of the objectives of SUD’EAU2 is to be part of a preliminary diagnosis of the problematic environmental, social and economic policies relating to water in south-west Europe.

From the analysis, it was found that there was insufficient implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) at local and regional level. This was found to be due to a lack of standardised methodologies and tools to help achieve the objectives of the WFD.

To address this problem, the members of SUD’EAU 2 established that the main objective of the project would be to improve the application of the WFD at a local and regional level by developing sustainable water management and conservation of river areas.

Other interim goals were :

  • Analyze and improve the tools developed in the first Sud’eau and extend them to new areas and watersheds.
  • Develop new experiences of reference at local and regional level operating within the WFD framework.
  • Extend the results of the project in the SUDOE area using innovative applications and utilities for the managers of alternative water sources and river areas.
  • Form a network of organisations for sustainable water management with the capacity to give proposals to policy makers in the institutional policies of water.
