The country profile pages aim to showcase selected environmental data, reported by Countries, under different European legal instruments contributing to the protection of freshwaters or 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.

Country profiles are related to 1) the implementation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) in Europe, available for each EU 27 Member States, Norway and Iceland and 2) water resources topic, covering all the EEA Countries and the Cooperating Countries.
