waterCEmanagement in practice


The implementation of the project results from the fact that water resources in Poland are one of the smallest in Europe, and without taking specific actions to protect water resources against ongoing climate change, the Polish economy may in the future significantly experience the effects of water deficits, which will negatively affect domestic agricultural, industrial and cost of drinking water.

The aim of the project is to strengthen the transformation towards a circular economy (circular economy) in the field of circular management of water resources. The project complements Poland's current activities in preventing and minimizing the effects of drought, i.e. the Ministry of Climate and Environment (programs for adaptation to climate change, Susza.gov.pl portal, etc.), NFOŚiGW and other WFOŚiGW (Moja Woda program), PGW Wody Polskie, NCBiR and many local governments offering subsidies for emerging retention systems. The need to develop water recovery solutions is also dictated by EU law, which on 26/06/2020 approved the regulation on water recovery in the EU. Poland has 3 years to adapt all systems to the requirements of the regulation. Therefore, the project is of key importance for the possibility of adapting the Polish system to EU requirements, as well as accelerating the transformation towards circular economy in the country. The implementation of the project is consistent with current documents on circular economy at the national and EU level regarding the implementation of effective management of primary raw materials (water) and secondary raw materials (recovered from sewage and rainwater), i.e. the "Closing the Loop" message (COM 398,2014) and the strategy The European Green Deal, which assumes the elimination of water pollution (COM 640,2019) and the Polish circular economy road map. The project complements the Moja Woda program and the administration's activities to prevent drought.
