MEP Water Group 2019-2024
The MEP Water Group is the focal point for the water topic in the European Parliament. It is a forum that aims to raise the profile of water as a cross-cutting topic in EU decision-making and make sure that Europe’s water resources are managed in a sustainable way to the benefit of the European economy and society as a whole, fostering the value of water and a water-smart society in Europe.
