Short description: This is the web site for the scientific work of the EU Water Initiative. over 1 billion people have no access to safe drinking water and over 2 billion lack basic sanitation. This is why leaders at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, in September 2002, called for halving these numbers by 2015. The EU strongly supports these goals. It is obvious that such ambitious goals on a global scale cannot be achieved with conventional means, even with all the current aid. Scientific knowledge and innovative approaches across policies and their instruments are important for tangible headway towards these goals. It will particularly require a great mobilisation of partners ranging from governments, water agencies, water users to civil society organisations and private enterprises. Open co-ordination and co-operation at all levels from local to international will be crucial. The second thrust of the Initiative concerns the general adoption of river basin-scale policy, planning and management, particularly for transboundary catchments.
