European Water Stewardship (EWS) is the integrative system for water users in business, agriculture and urban areas that defines steps towards a Sustainable Water Management (SWM) at operational and river basin level. As water users agree that they share river basins in much the same way as they share sectoral, national or regional concerns, EWS considers the RB as an important focus. It is the result of a wide stakeholder process, coordinated by the European Water Partnership (EWP), and embodies the collective effort and know-how of water users in agriculture and industry.

Direct beneficial use of rainfall is a substantial amount of water (green water), which if properly assessed, could significantly switch the balance of equitable utilization formulas. A proper water resources assessment is an essential step for the equitable utilization of shared water resources as it provides the opportunity for cooperation among riparian countries of a river basin to develop the untapped water resources in the basin rather than compete over already utilized water resources (blue water).
