WP2: National Planning Processes

Activity 2.1: Guidelines for the Drought Management Plan

The IDMP CEE focuses mainly on current gaps in the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). One of the WFD requirements for a River Basin Management Plan is to develop a Drought Management Plan as a supplementary measure, in case obligatory measures are not sufficient to avoid water scarcity. However, this requirement was not fulfilled in any of the participating CEE countries. This, therefore, is the main reason why the IDMP CEE aims to develop Guidelines as a support tool for preparing Drought Management Plans in each participating country.

Activity 2.2: National consultation dialogues

This activity will support the national process of the development of a Drought Management Plan in each participating country through national consultation dialogues.
