These ambitious goals are designed to produce the complementary and interlinked objectives of human health protection and improvement through the reduction of microbial and toxic hazards from water and the parallel protection of aquatic ecosystems. This is also essential to the delivery of sustainable ecosystem services which are vital for societies worldwide requiring: (i) assimilation and purification of pollutants; (ii) flood protection; (iii) maintenance of biodiversity; and (iv) sufficient quantity of clean water for industrial processes including cooling, irrigation of crops and hydro-power generation.
