The Danube River Basin Management Plan 2009-2015

Nine years in the planning, the Danube River Basin Management Plan (DRBM Plan) is one of the most comprehensive analyses ever attempted of the status and management options for a major river system. Involving over 200 experts from 14 countries and the EU, as well as hundreds of people living in the region, this is the document that will secure the future of the Danube rivers for future generations. It provides a detailed overview of the basin and sets out a Joint Programme of Measures, guiding activities across the 25,117 km of investigated river network. Taking a source-to-sea approach, it facilitates the sustainable use of the Danube’s resources and addresses key requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD).
