Knowledge Hub for Water

Knowledge Hub for Water

Water is a key resource for several sectors: agriculture, energy production, domestic supply, industry. Aquatic ecosystems are also home to a rich biodiversity and offer many cultural and recreational opportunities.

The Knowledge Hub for Water provides scientific evidence and data tools developed in JRC projects to support EU water policy and its integration with other sectoral policies, such as agriculture, energy, climate, with a focus on environmental and health protection, as required by the EU Green Deal, in the Farm to Fork, Biodiversity, and Zero Pollution Strategies.
