Spain: Ebro RBMP approved, despite conflicts between administrations
Last Friday February 28th, the Ebro RBMP was approved, including strong "development elements" like 40 new dams and 500.000 new hectares of irrigated cropland, and "against" the votes of one of the key regions and competent authorities - the Catalonian Government.
For those interested, see more info in Spanish at: La Vanguardia. Though the Government is on its way towards the approval of RBMPs, this seems to be at a high cost, and with immediate legal complaints.
