As confirmed recently by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, climate change already exists with wide ranging consequences. Europe is as affected as all other regions of the world. Management responses to climate change include the development of new approaches to system assessment and design and the adoption of non-structural methods through mechanisms like the European Union Water Framework Directive (EU WFD) and the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). In this article, the evaluation and contribution of recent European policies towards the protection and preservation of water under climate change is discussed. The impact of WFD and EU CAP application in Lake Koronia is presented and discussed.
