Published the Resolution of the Council of Ministers approving PENSAARP 2030

The resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 23/2024 was published today in Diário da República no. 25/2024, Series I of 2024-02-05, pages 24-44, which approves the Strategic Plan for the Supply of Water and Wastewater and Stormwater Management 2030 (PENSAARP 2030). This Resolution had already been approved at the Council of Ministers meeting on December 14th, 2023, as we announced at the time.

It is mentioned that the full version of PENSAARP 2030, consisting of volume 1: Strategic Plan and volume 2: Action Plan, will be made available at the electronic address https://apambiente.pt/agua/PENSAARP2030, on the website of the Portuguese Agency for Environment.

The plan establishes the development framework for the water services sector (water supply and wastewater sanitation), updating PENSAAR 2020 and introducing a new component: rainwater management. Based on the assessment of the current situation of the sector and taking into account, in particular, the emerging challenges of climate change, PENSAARP 2030 identifies the main strategic priorities for investment and financing of water services for the current decade. The Plan aims at four global strategic objectives, materialized in 70 measures distributed across different priority levels, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and the economic, environmental and societal valorization of services.

We will return to this topic shortly.
