Welcome to the web space for the WaterCo-Governance (WaterCoG) project. WaterCoG is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

Working with a range of partners and stakeholders from Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands and the UK, WaterCoG aims to understand the extent to which effective stakeholder and community participation in water management (co-governance) can deliver more sustainable and long-term approaches to managing North Sea Region (NSR) ecosystems by improving the implementation of key environmental objectives such as the Water Framework Directive (WFD).
