                   The aim of this learning unit is to give you a better feeling of what Integrated
                   River Basin Management (IRBM) means in practice, by looking at the way it is
                   embedded in the WFD. People who have already studied the course ‘Water                                        mouse over: Water Framework

                   thorough understanding of this. In that case some aspects in this learning unit
                   may be familiar to you.

                      Integrated approaches to water management are steadily winning ground in
                      the field of policy making. It has been incorporated in national and
                      international policies. A very important example of EU legislation that has the
                      integrated approach as a vital aspect is the European Water Framework
                      Directive (WFD; Directive 2000/60/EC).

                   This directive introduces an innovative, integrated and holistic approach to
                   the protection and management of water resources. The WFD requires
                   implementation of various measures in all countries of the European
      1         TS Community. It expands the scope of water protection to all waters and all         ‘good status’
                   water-related activities and sets clear objectives that a ‘good status’ must be
                   achieved for all waters by 2015 and that sustainable water use is ensured
                   throughout Europe.

                      The WFD also explicitly mentions the river basin as the principle water
                      management unit. Not only multi-sectoral but also cross-border integration
                      are vital for a healthy management of river systems. This aspect has a very
                      prominent place in the WFD text.                                                                         link to WFD in the specific

                      In this learning unit we make use of information on the WFD that is
                      abundantly available on the internet. As public consultation is an important
                      part of WFD implementation, information sharing is well organized.

                   Start with browsing the WISE website to get an understanding of what the
                   WFD is about. Continue with answering the questions, with the help of the
      1         TS
                   information on the website.

                      For those who are interested to know more about the WFD we refer to the
                      Leonardo course “Water Framework Directive”. Also you can browse the
                      internet for the various EU documents that are readily available online.

                      delineated and where does a Member State has responsibilities?

                   All Member States that share responsibility in a river basin district have to
                   work together to construct a River Basin Management Plan (RBMP),

                     (ICPDR) is an example of a successful transnational river management body.

                     Convention, which came into force in 1998, so it already existed with the entry
                     into force of the WFD. It was the logical choice for coordinating the

This chapter is very web
based. But for me it is o.k.
A problem might be that
the links sometimes
change and then there is
not much left…

I am not sure if healthy in
this context is a correct
formulation. I suggest:
successful, effective.

I am not sure if it is
possible to find all these
information on the wise
webpage. Maybe you can
provide me the page
where you think this
information can be found.
maybe we can link to
"http://ec.europa.eu/envir
onment/water/water-
framework/objectives/impl
ementation_en.htm" but I
am not sure if it meets the
core of the question.




Will we have a selection
of wfd links at the end?

references, did you?
