The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) established a legal framework at the EU level targeting to prevent the further deterioration and achieve “good status” for all water bodies in Europe, taking into account the water needs of aquatic ecosystems, and promoting sustainable water use. The WFD supports integrated water management; and sets provisions to improve efficiency of water use and water services. Through specific provisions laid out in its Article 1, the WFD creates a flexible and suitable frame for action against water stress, underscoring the relation between water quantity, water quality and ecological status.
