home RIVER BASIN MANAGEMENT PLANS REVIEW 

The Second Report on the State of the Alps highlited the presence within the Alpine perimeter of an high number of facilities already in place as well as their considerable impacts on ecology of waters. Nevertheless the Alpine perimeter as a whole still provides technical potential for further hydropower generation.

Based on the recommendations of the Second Report on the State of the Alps, the X Alpine Conference (Evian, 2009) established a Platform on "Water Management in the Alps". Part of the mandate of this platform is to examine whether alpine specific issues are adequately covered within national river basin management plans prescribed by the EU Water Framework Directive.

The "Draft Summary and Conclusion of River Basin Management Plan Reviews" represents the first step of this analysis mandated by the X Ministerial Conference of the Alpine Conference in Evian, March 2009.
