The present report addresses the topic of safe water and healthy water services in a changing environment. It is the product of cooperation between the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the Italian Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea (MATTM) in preparation for the Fifth Ministerial Environment and Health Conference in Parma in March 2010.

This report focuses on climate change's effects on water and ecosystems services, particularly under extreme weather conditions such as flooding and drought. It covers the European Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) (1) and is based on a review of existing assessments and other literature conducted by the Water Research Centre, UK, (WRC) during the period November 2009–February 2010.

The paper was also prepared as a contribution to the 'European Environment Assessment of Assessments' process prior to the 2011 Astana Environment Ministers Conference, which aims to support the development of a regular process for assessing the pan-European environment in an effective, streamlined and sustainable manner.
