The Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies (NEREUS) in tandem with the European Commission and the European Space Agency is pleased to invite you to the Copernicus4regions webinar: How Copernicus helps Europe’s regions to increase resilience to climate change: user stories about water management. Impulse statement by Juan Espadas (ES/PES), Mayor of Seville, Chair of the Committee of the Regions’ working group “Green Deal Going Local”.

Water plays a fundamental role in different policy areas of the EU Green Deal, ranging from Clean Energy, Sustainable Industry, to Biodiversity and From Farm to Fork. Water contributes to increase climate resilience to hydrological extremes and to protect, conserve as well as enhance the EU’s natural capital. Water is a common good and concerns all parts of human, animal, and plant lives. Agriculture is one of the largest consumers of water. Thus, in order for Europe to realize its ambitions, it needs to be managed in a sustainable way, in terms of both quality and quantity.

About the Copernicus4regions webinars
In these 5 targeted webinars, representatives of regional administrations, public users, regional stakeholders, politicians, EU representatives, and other interested stakeholders will engage in an online discussion on the dimension of Copernicus for the green and digital transition in Europe. Copernicus users will share their experiences:
- how Public Administrations in Europe have successfully incorporated the use of Copernicus into their organisations and workflows;
- what are the benefits for their territories and public policies and the outlook to the future;
- and eventually why Copernicus is a game-changer in the development of sustainable practices and better public policies.
These 1h webinars will be based on key user domains, such as water quality or forestry, (more information on the attached leaflet).
