Environment, water, energy & climate change

Spatial Policy

Economic growth is driving an increase in energy demand and greater pressure on natural resources and the quality of the environment. That economic development should follow the principles of sustainability is widely accepted; but how can we translate this concept into concrete solutions? An integrated approach comprising economic, institutional and technical perspectives is vital. Ecorys is involved in many interesting and relevant projects in this field in the EU, Eastern European countries, Newly Independent States and developing countries.

Land and water resource management are key parts in many of these projects, with growing competition for water (largely due to increasing populations) and the ever shrinking access to useable water due to climate changes and contamination as major and recurring issues.
