In general it is about the Water Framework Directive. 
You have already heard about WFD? Great! 
If not, here is some information: 
The WFD aims to unify the European water policy by providing a framework for the protection of surface water, coastal and transitional waters as well as for groundwater. 
Goal: A good ecological and chemical status of European surface waters and groundwater . 
What is the game about?

River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs) 
What is it? 
Plans are a requirement of the Water Framework Directive and a means of 
achieving the protection, improvement and sustainable use of the water 
environment across Europe. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Basin_Management_Plans) 
Some countries in Europe have already completed these plans, however some 
are still not completed. 
By the way, the deadline for submitting the RBMPs was in 2009 . . .!
How well do you know the water bodies in Europe and the status of implementation of the RBMPs? ...let’s find out.
Let’s get some basics down: We will use these symbols to represent the current status of implementation and the quality of water: 
Good 
Moderate 
Poor and Bad 
Make sure you keep track of your points during the game. If you get it right, you will get 3 points, and if you get it wrong, you get -1 point.

Explanation of the assignment to a face symbol: 
Implementation: 
= complete RBMP was reported 
= incomplete RBMP was reported 
= RBMP not reported or the reported documents are not meeting the requirements 
Water quality: 
% of water bodies having a high or good ecological status 
= > 60% 
= 40-60% 
= <40%

The United Kingdom 
The UK has identified 16 river basin districts. There are 11 in England and Wales, 3 in Scotland and 4 in Northern Ireland (including 3 international RBDs). One river basin district, Solway Tweed, is in both England and Scotland.
The consultation process is completed. The UK has done a great job so far in following the direction of the River Basin Management Plans. They have been very compliant and have provided detailed information on the water bodies in the UK.

In England and Wales about 40% of the water bodies have a good or high ecological status. Assessment methods for the classification of ecological status are fully developed for all biological quality elements in river and coastal waters, but are not developed for fish in lakes. Phytoplankton has not been developed for transitional waters across the UK.

Denmark 
Denmark has four river basin districts (River Basin District I : Jylland and Fyn, River Basin District 2 : Sjaelland, River Basin District 3 : Bornholm, River Basin District 4 : International RBD ).
Denmark takes a narrow approach to water services. The polluter pays principle is applied for wastewater treatment and water supply with 100 % of the funding of the service provided by users, but there is no information about cost recovery for other water services (e.g. for water used for irrigation and directly abstracted from the source by farmers).

In Denmark less than 30% of the water bodies have a good or high ecological status. It has a national approach to the assessment of ecological status. Comparison between the RBMPs and the 2009 WFD implementation report for Danish 
methods shows that fewer methods are available now, however Danish authorities have clarified that new assessment methods are in development.

Germany 
Germany has 10 river basin districts, 6 of which are international sharing water courses with Denmark to the north, Poland and Czech Republic to the east, Austria, Switzerland and France to the south and southeast and Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands to the west.
Some Länder worked together to submit one plan, while other 
Länder produced individual plans for the same basin, sometimes to varying degrees of detail. The result of these differences is only a patchwork of information on how the WFD is being implemented.

Many RBMPs refer instead to the use of indices established under previous Italian legislation to determine ecological status: in particular, the SECA (Stato ecologico dei corsi d’acqua, ecological status of waterways), mainly for river 
water bodies, which uses benthic macro-invertebrates as well as physico-chemical elements.

Now that you know more about the general status of rivers in Europe, what about your own river, and that of your friends and partners? Go to module letter writing . . .
These Balkan countries are not part of the WFD, but . . . 
They also have rivers which need to be protected. 
In fact, some of the remaining wild rivers of Europe are currently at risk here! 
So we should not forget about these countries in the blue heart of Europe.

  • 1. River Basin Management Plans Click here to start
  • 2. In general it is about the Water Framework Directive. You have already heard about WFD? Great! If not, here is some information: The WFD aims to unify the European water policy by providing a framework for the protection of surface water, coastal and transitional waters as well as for groundwater. Goal: A good ecological and chemical status of European surface waters and groundwater . What is the game about?
  • 3. Implementation of the WFD 2003 Implementation in national law 2004 Inventory 2006 Monitoring 2009 Establishment and Publishing of River Basin Management Plans 2012 Implementation of River Basin Management Plans 2015 Achievement of goals Steps to take until the year 2015
  • 4. River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs) What is it? Plans are a requirement of the Water Framework Directive and a means of achieving the protection, improvement and sustainable use of the water environment across Europe. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Basin_Management_Plans) Some countries in Europe have already completed these plans, however some are still not completed. By the way, the deadline for submitting the RBMPs was in 2009 . . .!
  • 5. How well do you know the water bodies in Europe and the status of implementation of the RBMPs? ...let’s find out.
  • 6. Let’s get some basics down: We will use these symbols to represent the current status of implementation and the quality of water: Good Moderate Poor and Bad Make sure you keep track of your points during the game. If you get it right, you will get 3 points, and if you get it wrong, you get -1 point. Always click on the “ ” button to return to the map. Once you finished all countries click Good luck!
