Vienna, 31 March 2021. The Danube River Basin Management Plan and Danube Flood Risk Management Plan Update 2021 are now published for public consultation!
Your comments can be sent until 30th September 2021.

As the culmination of our six-year management cycle, the ICPDR is currently developing its Danube River Basin Management Plan and Danube Flood Risk Management Plan Updates 2021, which will guide activities throughout the Danube River Basin for the next six years from 2021 - 2027. These plans aim to make the waters of the Danube River Basin cleaner, healthier, and safer. They will further protect and enhance the status of all waters and to ensure the sustainable, long-term use of water resources as well as the sustainable management of flood risks. 

For the development of the management plans, representatives of civil society and stakeholders are called upon to contribute their views, give us their opinions, and have their say. The people of the Danube River Basin will be affected by the measures following the plans for generations to come, and therefore, they are given an opportunity to have a word on their development from the beginning.

As of today, 31st March 2021, the ICPDR provides the draft management plans for comments on its website. The public is invited to submit comments on the documents – which can be downloaded here to the ICPDR Secretariat until the 30th September 2021. These can be sent in writing to the address below, or to the dedicated email address:  jsq-sq@vpcqe.betgro.rdpci@df-dfw . Comments will be taken into account during the review and finalisation of the plans until December 2021.
