Question for written answer E-000783-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Francesc Gambús (PPE)

 Subject:  Failure to protect wetlands in Europe
 Answer in writing 

On 5 November 2018, I asked the Commission for its opinion on some Member States’ low levels of investment in environmental protection in the context of water planning. Among other problems, the lack of investment has led to a deterioration of the condition of aquifers and wetlands. In its answer of 10 January 2019, the Commission did not give its opinion. Fourteen days later, however, on 24 January 2019, the Commission brought an action against Spain before the European Court of Justice over a failure to take adequate measures to protect the bodies of groundwater that feed the Doñana Wetlands.

1. What view does the Commission take of the condition of wetlands in Europe, in particular those in Spain?

2. Can it provide an assessment of the condition of the Ebro Delta wetlands?
