The first EJWP group project was commissioned by Water Europe and consisted of a desk study and public consultation on human capital in the water sector at European level. The results of the project were further taken up by the WE Working Group Human Capital which has further developed the results into a position paper titled ‘Towards a water-related human capital agenda for the Green Deal’.
The new position paper is developed to bring the knowledge on the challenges and good practices of Human Capital in the European Water Sector (EJWP Report released last September) to the tables of the policymakers.
The position paper outlines specific recommendations as outcomes of a consultation carried out in July 2019. The document also offers a selection of the most significant results of this research under four categories: general overview, education, demography, and indirect investments.
The position paper has been presented to the EC and is made available for the water sector with the aim to raise awareness, give direction, show practical opportunities and emphasize the importance of investment in human capital to be resilient and supportive of innovation.
