The workshop also addressed to authorities in Member States dealing with the planning, preparation and implementation of River Basin Management Plans, as well as authorities responsible for the permitting of new infrastructure projects, in particular those that could be concerned with the concrete application of exemptions under the Water Framework Directive.
The workshop touched on available guidance on the requirements of the Water Framework Directive related to the environmental objectives, and then continued with the presentation of concrete case studies and good practices from selected Member States related to hydropower, river navigation, floods management and river restoration projects.
The case studies presented focused on how environmental objectives and the application of exemptions for projects involving new physical modifications were attained. Other relevant subjects covered in the workshop included the definition of adequate mitigation measures, evaluation and selection of better environmental options, and the justification of projects as required by the Water Framework Directive.
