What is the game about? 
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 .

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

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

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 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.

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 
. . . 
For additional information about the system of evaluation please click here
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.

Guess game water framework directive

  • 1. River Basin Management Plans Click here to start
  • 2. What is the game about? 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 .
  • 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!
  • 7. Additional Information: 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% For additional information visit the website of the European Commission: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/water/participation/map_mc/map.htm
  • 8. Select a country to begin the quiz! Germany UK Denmark Ireland Portugal Spain Italy Sweden Finland Estonia Latvia Lithuania Norway Iceland France Poland Austria Netherland Belgium Czech Republik Greece Bulgaria Serbia Romania Slovenia Croatia Slovakia Hungary Macedonia Albania Bosnia and Herzegovina Belarus
  • 9. 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).
