A fresh perspective on water in European cities

  • Reading


The European Commission has published the Urban Water Atlas for Europe, described as a ‘first of its kind’ publication combining information on best practices and viable solutions with an infographic-based approach to presenting the status of water in cities across Europe and with visual representations of water created by artists and children.

The atlas is one of the outcomes of the BlueSCities project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. It stems from a collaboration between the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, Fundació CTM Centre Tecnològic, KWR Watercycle Research Institute, the European Innovation Partnership on Water, and NETWERC H20 – the Network for Water in European Regions and Cities.
