Innovations and French Know-how
French water stakeholders have innovative know-how to address major water challenges.
Since the 1960s, the definition and implementation of French water policy has been based on a process of continuous innovation.
The result is the creation of effective governance and the development of technological, environmental and social innovations in close connection with an effective training system. This policy resulted in numerous progresses concerning the protection of water resources.
Two challenges still lie ahead : the reduction of agricultural pollution and the response to extreme weather hazards including flooding and drought.
