In order to properly respond to various aspects of water stress from the supply and demand side of water resources management, in 2007 the EU adopted a Communication on water scarcity and drought in an effort to bring clarity on policy priorities on how to tackle water stress. Implementation of the Communication was reviewed in several stages and in 2012 the Blueprint to Safeguard Europe’s Water Resources was published.
