Between the first and second WFD planning cycle, water pricing has been more widely applied by EU Member States, and new pricing schemes were introduced in various sectors (e.g. drinking water & sanitation, agriculture, industry). However, although incentive pricing is an explicit requirement of the WFD to ensure compliance with its principles and objectives, the current pricing mechanisms do not always provide adequate incentives for efficient water use and sustainable water management (Buchanan et al., 2019).
