We congratulate the International Commission for the Hydrology of the Rhine basin (CHR) on their 50th anniversary, looking forward to continuing our successful cooperation in the near future.
The Rhine and its tributaries are doing much better. Based on the successes achieved, further progress is needed to reach the good status. This is shown by the reports on the ecology and water quality of the Rhine adopted at the plenary session of the International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine (ICPR) on 1 and 2 July 2021. The findings also flow into the International River Basin Management Plan Rhine 2022-2027 according to the EU Water Framework Directive.
Nobody can remain indifferent to the images from the storm areas in various European countries! Our solidarity is with all those affected and the relief workers. We call on you to donate money for those affected. You can find out where and how to donate in the media. Please donate only to trustworthy organisations. Even though the Rhine itself was hardly affected, the ICPR will continue to deal intensively with climate change adaptation and heavy rain in the future.
