WATER

Water has clear strategic importance for climate change across sectors, ecosystems, and locations. This is evidenced by the number of mentioned UNs Sustainable Development Goals, which are connected to this element.

Water also plays a key role in EU legislation, including being one of the six environmental objectives of the framework to facilitate sustainable investment (2020).

Within the fund taxonomy, the "water" category includes projects and companies focusing on sustainable water management, dealing with water as a threatened vital resource, and solving problems with pollution or drought.
