Water scarcity and extreme hydrological events in the form of droughts and floods are also contributing factors to not meeting GES and GEP. These water resource issues are discussed in detail in chapters 4 and 5. Too little or too much water impacts almost all economic sectors; including agriculture, energy supply, drinking water supply, industry and tourism. But managing water resources sustainably also means ensuring that ecosystems have the quality and quantity of water required to function and maintain natural processes.

    Could you please clarify whether the data are used, are the data of the river basin community or of the member states. The presentation of the data should use data related to the river basin. At the moment, it seems that the data are mixed.
