       This contract is the first signed between the State, represented by the Ecology ministry, and the National agency for water and aquatic environments (Onema), a public entity.

It is a founding document for such a recently
created agency. The guidelines and the goals set in this document for the 2009-2012 period confirm and complete the in-depth work undertaken to prepare the 2008-2010 work program of the agency. They take into account all identified components of the current context and public policy, notably the commitments contained in the Grenelle agreements for the environment and the oceans, the resources invested to meet those commitments, and the decisions made concerning the general revision of public policies.

This contract manifests the major ambition of the signing parties to see Onema reinforce its role as the leading French technical organisation active in restoring the good status of water and aquatic environments.
