Access to clean water is an important 2030 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), as its role in reducing poverty and disease and promoting sustainable growth is paramount. Water, as a common good, is also protected by European environmental law. The Blueprint framework consists of many initiatives, related to the EU's 2020 Strategy, covering even a longer timeline until 2050. The package includes the Water Framework Directive (2000), amendments to the Directive of Drinking Water (2015), Groundwater Directive (2006), Bathing Water Directive (2006), and River Basin Management plans.
