Environmental issues have been given much attention by the public lately, with focus on the ongoing discussion about the Kyoto Protocol and the recent signing of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. This renewed public awareness may lead to benefits and increased human welfare if linked with the socio-economic issues prevailing in today’s society. Water is one of the earth’s most important life sustainable elements, and the environmental status of the aquatic ecosystems are heavily influenced directly and indirectly by human activities. Part of the GIWA mission is to highlight the impact of environmental problems on the economy, human health, and other aspects of society, and to include these links in our assessment program.

Seas, lakes, wetlands, rivers, and groundwater basins not only provide us with water for all human purposes. They also constitute life-support systems, which provide us with fundamental ecological and other services. The character of our planet, physically as well as biologically, is shaped by water. Without water all life ceases.
