On the other hand, it should be noted that progress in implementation has been slow since the Blueprint to Safeguard European Waters back in 2012. The transition from crisis to risk management approaches has been mostly a conceptual one, as in its implementation, this change of paradigm has exposed a lack of institutional capacity across many Member States (Tsakiris, 2015). Further, to be truly effective, the risk management approach has to be adopted by all sectors which have a direct or indirect influence on water, e.g. via decisions on land use (EU COR, 2011). It will be important to renew the efforts on this, especially in areas with recurrent drought issues, as the impacts of temporary drought events can last much longer than the initial phenomenon and their socio-economic damages can be considerable. The EU Green Deal and the update of the EU Strategy on Adaptation to climate change are opportunities to do so.
