One of the primary advantages provided by the ICPDR is its capacity to assist national decision-makers in effectively balancing the competing needs and various uses of the Danube River. These encompass areas such as hydropower generation, agriculture, and climate risk management. The ICPDR functions as a comprehensive platform for member countries, facilitating consultation, coordination, and the holistic management of the Danube River Basin.

The most effective approach to overseeing shared water resources on a transboundary scale is the implementation of Integrated River Basin Management (IRBM), grounded in robust data and mutually agreed-upon measures designed to tackle collective challenges. 

Additionally, fostering cross-sectoral dialogue is of paramount importance for the development and executing Danube River Basin Management plans.
