Folder Joint Process

The Mediterranean Joint Process is a collaboration between the Mediterranean component of the EU Water Initiative and the Common Implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD).

The objective is to produce recommendations for water management based on the EU Water Framework directive. For EU countries, these recommendations could be used as guidance when implementing the directive and as technical elements for the convergence of legislation for non-EU countries. This is the case of the European Neighbourhood Policy, which - through the implementation of Actions Plans agreed between the EU and partner countries (see key reports for Partner Countries) - aims in particular at the gradual approximation of policy, legislation and practice. The issues of sustainable development and environment are included in each of these Action Plans.

Working groups have been established for the different phases of the Joint Process. They foresee the production of specific Mediterranean recommendations and examples to be integrated into EU reports.
