2.1.    Why a thematic assessment on Vulnerability

There exist numerous challenges in attaining the Water Framework Directive (WFD) objectives (EC 2000, art. 4) and the EU response is to provide a range of policy options to be embedded in the “Blueprint to Safeguard Europe's Water”. The proposed aim of the Blueprint is to outline a strategy that will ensure good quality water in sufficient quantities for all legitimate uses by 2020. It will also present a future vision towards 2050 in order to influence long-term policy development. The Blueprint will synthesise policy recommendations resulting from the assessment of River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs), the vulnerability of water resources to climate change and other pressures, the review of the EU action on Water scarcity and drought, and a comprehensive fitness check of the overall EU water policy to achieve this ambitious objective.
