European Union of Water Management Associations (EUWMA)

The European Union of Water Management Associations (EUWMA) represents public, local and regional water management organizations from nine EU member states: Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

EUWMA members are public institutions with legal powers. EUWMA was established in 1996 with the primary aim to increase cooperation between European Water Management Associations, so as to provide relevant information, position papers and policy documents to national governments, the European Commission, the European Parliament and other relevant institutions. In addition, EUWMA promotes the exchange of knowledge and best practices between members.

In our view, EU water legislation can only be successful if water is managed at regional level. As water challenges vary in different river basins, solutions should be tailored to local conditions, rather than the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach often favoured by national government departments.

Good and efficient water management is what we stand for, at regional and national level as well as in Europe.

Secretary General of EUWMA

FENAREG, the Portuguese National Federation of Irrigators, assumed the EUWMA Presidency 2015-2016.

Issues and interests

The low-lying areas of Europe are under threat from tidal and inland flooding and are dependent on land drainage to sustain land use.

They are also often of high environmental value. This value could be detrimentally affected by the management of flood protection and land drainage systems.

To this extent the water management organisations in these countries are facing the same issues. Cooperation can benefit these organisations, the countries in which they operate, and wider European interests.

Objective

EUWMA members are umbrella organisations in EU member states representing organisations responsible for regional and local water management.

EUWMA represents over 8.600 individual organisations,
covering around 55 million hectares.

EUWMA aims to increase cooperation between its members, so as to provide information, views, position papers and policy documents to governments, the European Commission, the European Parliament and other institutions.

Activities

  • Holding meetings to exchange views and formulate policies on matters of common interest.
  • Jointly considering proposals by the European Union and submitting joint proposals.
  • Exchanging proposals to national governments on European issues.
  • Keeping members updated on developments that could impact on flood protection and land drainage.
  • Exchanging administrative and technical information and publications of common interest.
  • Seeking collaboration in research and development.
  • Organising a yearly general meeting and workshops on relevant themes.
