The country profile pages aim to showcase selected environmental data, reported by Countries, under 1) different European legal instruments contributing to the protection of freshwaters; 2) national laws, implementing these policies.

Statistics at Country level, usually calculated under the coordination of the European Environment Agency, could also be included to complement the overview of freshwaters’ status and of the policies’ implementation..

In this section

In this section is possible to explore key data and information at Countries level; Non-EU Countries are also included, when on voluntary basis they endorse EU legislation requirements.

The first example available in this section is related to the implementation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) in Europe. These Country profile pages are available for each EU 27 Member State, as well as for Norway and Iceland.
