Inland Water Recources

1. Greek and European freshwater resources are in constant decline due to extensive land use, water extraction and climate change. All this pressure disrupts the natural flow regime of freshwater bodies. Also, in some areas water demand exceeds supply, further exacerbating the scarcity of freshwater resources.

2. The management of inland water resources, surface water, and groundwater should ensure their sustainability in terms of quantity
and quality. In this context, the Armed Forces should:

a. Implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in the context of the rational use of available water resources, seeking to reduce water consumption and reuse it where possible.
b. Take measures to prevent any qualitative or quantitative degradation of water resources due to their operational activities.
