This Ecologic Brief gives an overview of the main results and policy implications of the HarmoniCOP project. HarmoniCOP provides a comprehensive knowledge base for public participation in water management. Centred around the concept of social learning, the project draws lessons from past approaches to public participation in EU Member States and gains insights from case studies conducted in nine European river basins.
