Water policy needs to be balanced across Europe, claims Karl Falkenberg, DG Environment
Karl Falkenberg, Director General for Environment at the European Commission met with leading environment & energy journalist Sonja van Renssen, to discuss the importance of Water & Air Quality Policies.
While resource efficiency dominated the efforts of DG Environment for the last year, 2012 will see special attention for water policy – for example through the Water Blue Print Report, expected in November / December 2012. In return, DG Environment will focus on air quality in 2013. The Director General discusses the importance of both policy fields and their environmental context.
