Worldwide, there is growing awareness of the need for policy responses that address the impacts of climate change on water (Quevauviller and Gemmer, 2015). In Europe, climate change and population growth are shifting conditions across a wider geographical spread (see Chapter 3). Member States like Sweden and Germany have suffered great economic losses stemming from droughts in 2018 and 2019, and increased variability in weather patterns is making the existing hotspots (e.g. Southern Europe) worse off. This is drawing renewed attention to water availability issues at the EU level, once more calling for updates on water scarcity and drought policy and action.
