The Communication calls for a “water efficient and water saving economy” that integrates “water issues into all sectoral policies”. There is an explicit recognition that economic development, in the form of e.g. new urban areas, industrial production capacities or irrigation perimeters, must take into account the availability of local water resources in order to avoid exacerbating water stress and the risk of damaging droughts. The implementation of the policy options promoted by the Communication was assessed in three yearly follow-up reports and a policy review (EC, 2008, 2010b, 2011b).
