In July 2020, the International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine (ICPR) will celebrate its 70th anniversary. It is one of the most successful international river basin commissions. This is shown, among other things, by the results of the "Rhine 2020" programme.
The 16th Conference of Rhine Ministers took place in Amsterdam on 13 February 2020. The responsible ministers and the EU representative assessed the achievements and adopted the new, forward-looking "Rhine 2040" programme.
