Public Consultation: Results

The ICPDR supports the active involvement of stakeholders and civil society on all levels of its work. Two of the most important plans to the ICPDR are the Danube River Basin Management Plan and the Flood Risk Management Plan, aiming to implement the legal requirements of WFD and FD, comprising strategic guiding plans for water management over the course of six years. Both are to be developed with a range of public consultation measures.

In line with the objectives of these legal bodies, the ICPDR develops work programs for 6-year periods, a River Basin Management Plan and the Floodrisk Management Plan for the Danube River Basin District. These plans are the central work programs for the ICPDR. As such, they should be developed with strong involvement of civil society and stakeholders from the beginning. Communities can become more meaningfully involved in the work of the ICPDR if they are well informed about its objectives and structure. Public information, educational initiatives and outreach activities are therefore already being utilised to support public participation, in addition to the more general use of social media as a communication tool. 

For the current implementation cycle, in 2021 the ICPDR pursued activities that ensured a high level of public consultation in the development of the plans to maximum of their ability, making fresh new usage of online measures considering the limitations of the pandemic. 

Below, you find links to the relevant references, documents and news items around the public consultation for these management plans.
