OECD Study on water out- with case study on the Danube

Posted by Kocsis-Kupper Zsuzsanna, Friday, 24th March 2017 @ 10:59 am
OECD countries have struggled to adequately address diffuse water pollution. It is much easier to regulate point source industrial and municipal polluters than engage with a large number of farmers and other land-users where variable factors like climate, soil and politics come into play. But, as the report points out, the cumulative effects of diffuse water pollution can be devastating for human well-being and ecosystem health. Ultimately, they can undermine sustainable economic growth. The report also presents a risk-based policy framework to tackle this challenge. Innovative policy responses need to be replicated, adapted and scaled-up if they are to have an effect.
