ICPR – International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine

River basin management plan

For the international river basin district Rhine (IRBD Rhine) the coordinated management plan according to Article 13, par. 7 WFD of 2009 has been checked and updated by 22 December 2015.

The draft of the management plan 2015 (part A) is again a result of international coordination in the Rhine river basin district. All states have agreed to the updated international part of the management plan part A.  It consists of a text part and maps, which may be downloaded here.

Thus, during the first half of 2015, the public has again had a possibility of participating. Replies to statements the ICPR received on the draft of the management plan (part A) are available here (only available in German, French and Dutch).

Further background information is available on the websites of the IKSMS for the international Moselle-Saar district or of the IGKB for Lake Constance. Information on the further management plans for some areas of operation in the IRBD Rhine can be downloaded here. The national management plans are to be found here.
