 Legislation is a key driver for water management in urban areas, industrial water use and bathing areas in Europe and beyond.
 A new principle was mentioned: The technological subsidiarity principle to prioritise nature-based solutions for addressing challenges.
 Similarly to the water-energy nexus, every sector must assess water use and pollution to value water.
