Water Framework Directive and Hydromorphology
On 17-19 October 2005 the European Workshop on "Water Framework Directive and Hydromorphology" convened officials from European Member States and Accession Countries as well as representatives of relevant stakeholder groups in Prague to set the agenda for the further process of addressing hydromophological pressures in the context of the implementation of the Water Framework Directive. The workshop served as a platform for facilitating exchange on both technical issues, such as hydromorphological risk assessment, heavily modified water bodies, and mitigation measures, as well as policy integration issues with particular foci on navigation, hydropower and flood defence. The workshop summary report is available for download. Here you can download the workshop summary report [pdf, 244 KB, English].
