Space 4 Critical Infrastructure: Drinking Water & Wastewater


Online Event

About this session

The focus is on setting up an all-hazards EU-framework that supports Member States in their national efforts to ensure that critical entities are able to prevent, resist, absorb and recover from disruptive incidents, no matter if they are caused by natural hazards, accidents, terrorism, insider threats, or public health emergencies. The novelty of the proposal is that it extends the scope of its predecessor to ten sectors, namely energy, transport, banking, financial market, health, drinking water, waste water, digital infrastructure, public administration and space.

Climate change results in increasingly frequent water scarcity and drought. The protection of water resources is one of the cornerstones of Europe’s environmental policy. The European space data stream provides multiple opportunities to make our water use more efficient.  This fourth thematic session of “Space 4 Critical Infrastructures” will showcase examples such as mapping water infrastructure and detecting underground leakages.
