Abstract: Integrated water management in Serbia is regulated by the Water Act, which gives a set of measures and activities aimed at maintaining and improving the water regime, providing the required amounts of water of the required quality for different purposes, protecting waters against pollution and protecting against the harmful effects of water. During the past decade, there has been some progress in improving environmental protection in general, but Serbia still bears the consequences of a heritage of environmental degradation. According to current estimates, significant investments in the future will be necessary to solve the problems of wastewater and water supply. Improvements are expected to the existing regulatory and technical framework in this field, as well as clearer structures in competent institutions. This paper presents the current and planned activities in the field of water management in Serbia.
