In the European Union, the EU Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC requires that member states address and reduce pollution from diffuse sources. Protection of freshwater resources is an even more formidable challenge in non-OECD countries, where more than 5 billion people are expected to be without a connection to public sewerage in 2030, and wastewater treatment facilities are largely non-existent or poorly functioning. Another policy response is to allocate the resource to where it adds most value.
Water-related infrastructure requires significant levels of investment and has long payback periods. The benefits are not fully recognised, therefore funds are difficult to mobilise, resulting in lower than needed investments and inadequate maintenance of infrastructure and in the difficulty of attracting good quality resources to the water sector (including management). This in turn results in low quality services, which reinforces the cycle by further reducing their value in the eyes of users and governments.
