Sustainable Water Management in Germany against the Background of European Liberalisation Trends

March 2004 to April 2004
Current developments at EU level indicate that water supply could soon no longer be subject to municipal self-administration, but instead to European competition rules and to a mandatory tendering procedure. In Germany, steps on reforming the water sector are currently considered in the framework of the national modernisation strategy. Against this background, the Green Party (Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen) in the German Parliament commissioned Ecologic to prepare an expert opinion on sustainable water management in Germany. Read more

Does European Regulation Threaten the German Water Sector?

TimeLoc
21 January 2004
Berlin
Germany
The German drinking water supply system is under pressure: European Commission plans indicate that the water supply should no longer be subject to municipal self-administration, but instead to European competition rules, and maybe even to a mandatory tendering procedure. Such a development would have far-reaching effects on the German drinking water supply. Against this background, Ecologic, in co-operation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, invited political actors from the European and national level, as well as representatives from the water industry, to an expert workshop that took place on 21 January 2004 in Berlin.

Environmental and Resource Costs in the Water Framework Directive: the Case of Germany

December 2003 to September 2004

The valuation of environmental and resource costs plays a central role for the implementation of the EC Water Framework Directive (WFD).

The study to the German Federal Environmental Agency was published.
