Water JPI presents policy brief at World Water Day
On Friday 22 March; World Water Day, the Joint Programming Initiative on ‘water challenges for a changing world’ (Water JPI) presented its first Policy Brief on Contaminants of Emerging Concerns (CECs). It highlights water contaminants such as antibiotic resistant bacteria travelling via irrigation waters, new mobile chemicals, and microplastics in water. The policy brief, titled: What is contaminating our waters next?, is a compilation of the results of seven high-level transnational research projects, funded by the Water JPI. The paper was produced in cooperation between the funded projects, the Water JPI community, the Water JPI Advisory Boards and high-level stakeholders. The key messages were presented at the Water JPI International Conference in 2018 in Helsinki.
