The WaterLIFE Declaration *
We, the undersigned, share a vision for healthy rivers, fair water use and sustainable supply chains. We are all committed to achieving this vision and recognise the importance of the following to do so:


Support and investment in the Catchment Based Approach, recognising catchment partnerships are an essential basis for collaborative action and impact at all scales.


Through its new abstraction and agricultural policies, the government must create a level playing field and ensure environmental protection across England and Wales.


All players working together openly, honestly and without blame, to develop shared, evidence-based and deliverable solutions.
