The EIP Water Action Group WaterCoRe on regional governance of water scarcity and drought issues centres around the implementation of Regional Action Plans that are intended to improve water governance in practice, with a focus on connecting institutions in different domains and on different levels of scale (multilevel governance).

The Action Group supports creating a sense of urgency and drivers for change (leadership), design and implementation of new arrangements for cooperation (including public-private partnerships and business opportunities) and will provide a knowledge exchange and best practices network, consisting of administrations and other representatives of seven European regions.
