Event Integrated River Basin Management under the Water Framework Directive: action programmes and adaptation to climate change

The conference will review technical challenges faced by Member States, stakeholder organisations and scientists, while developing the first River Basin Management Plan under the Water Framework Directive (WFD). It will focus on aspects of integration, looking at the way cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary co-operation has developed, and how emerging issues such as adaptation to climate changes will be considered in the future.

This event aims to be a forum of exchanges between policy-makers, stakeholders, and scientists on issues that are closely related to the implementation of EU water policies. Discussions will hence not be limited to the WFD, but will open up to related policies concerning, for example, priority substances, groundwater, floods, climate change adaptation, etc.

Poster contributions are encouraged in policy, research, and science-policy interfacing categories. Refereed, full poster papers may be published in a prestigious trade journal, and guidelines on poster submissions are available on the website. Best poster prizes

There will be an associated trade exhibition, and exhibition fees include one delegate place. Please see the website or contact the Secretariat for more details.

Registration costs €270 for members, €320 for non-members
