What Has Europe Ever Done for the Environment – Programme 5 – Our Water

In programme 5 of our series ‘What Has Europe Ever Done for the Environment’ we ask ‘What Has Europe Ever Done for our Water?’ Reporter Susan Clarke brings interviews with Vincent O’Connor ASSAP Advisor (Agricultural Sustainability Support and Advisory Programme) with Teagasc who gives us an insight into the stages involved in liaising with communities about the water quality in their rivers or streams while farmer Paul O’Brien gives his experience of engaging with ASSAP. Finally, Ann Phelan Community Water Officer in the Southeast for LAWPRO (Local Authorities Water Programme) gives an overview of the EU’s Water Framework Directive – the overarching legislation that is behind all the actions Ireland is taking to address our water quality issues. ‘What Has Europe Ever Done for the Environment?’ is funded by the Communicating Europe Initiative.
