CAS has responded to the EU’s consultation on EU drinking water policy. The consultation was launched in response to the European Citizens’ Initiative “Right2Water”. This is the first ever, successful participatory democracy instrument at EU level, and focuses on improving the supply of safe, good quality drinking water across the EU.
CAS’ response welcomes the EU’s commitment to increase the supply of safe, good quality drinking water across the EU, and its actions and initiatives in this area. Our response also welcomed the fact that the EU’s action to promote safer, better, and more accessible, water is based on quality, physical accessibility and affordability, an approach which CAS supports.
