National Water Strategy

The BMU's National Water Strategy looks at the challenges facing water management in Germany up to the year 2050. For ten strategic issues, it describes where we want Germany to be by 2050 and the goals and measures the BMU is pursuing along the way.

The BMU draft for a "National Water Strategy" is based on the results of a two-year National Water Dialogue. More than 200 participants from the water industry, agriculture and research, from associations, the federal states and municipalities, together with the BMU, have compiled the most important challenges and goals for the development of water management. The National Citizens' Dialogue on Water contributed further ideas and collected the public's demands on policymakers. For the transformation to sustainable water management, we need all stakeholders involved.
