The Water JPI Vision 2030, “Together for a Water-secure World”, outlines what the Water JPI aims to achieve during the next 10-year period (until 2030) and sets out the roadmap for all Water JPI activities taking into account the main trends, the key drivers and challenges in relation to our water resources.
The Vision 2030 will reinforce global leadership in water research and foster collaboration to achieve safe, clean and sustainably managed water resources for all. This will be achieved using a multi-faceted and cross-sectoral approach that encompasses policy, environmental, economic, technological and societal considerations.
It is first in the hierarchy of the Water JPI’s activities and provides the context for further activities (i.e. trends, drivers and challenges) in responding to the issues faced by Europe and increasingly at a global level.
This Vision 2030 document includes:
■ an overview of the key water challenges;
■ an overview of water-related policy and recent developments;
■ an overview of key cross-cutting issues, drivers and enablers that drive change and apply across all areas of research;
■ the four key research themes being addressed by the Water JPI; and
■ objectives and indicators to measure the effectiveness of the Water JPI and its activities.
