Water Management

Water Management

Improved environmental status in ecosystems and reduced adverse effects of pollution and other human activities

The programme addresses the need to improve the environmental status of water ecosystems by supporting the rational use of water mainly in vulnerable areas and islands. It is expected to provide drinking water to vulnerable areas and islands and technologies for water leakages in water grids. In addition, the programme will finance research studies which will provide with data and solutions for the improvement of the status of water bodies or improvement of water management. The programme also funds the Water matters awareness campaign for school children on 6 Greek islands, which highlights the water problems and the importance of improving the status of water bodies. The islands have been selected according to the projects implemented there during the previous EEA Grants funding period.
