Germany, UK and the European Commission have jointly organised the 2nd workshop on Water Management, Water Framework Directive and Hydropower on 13-14 September 2011. The workshop was prepared by the German Federal Environment Agency, together with a Common Implementation Strategy (CIS) organising committee and the Ecologic Institute as consultant. The German Federal State of Baden-Wuerttemberg hosted the workshop at its Representation to the European Union in Brussels.

The workshop was held in the context of the ad hoc activity “Hydromorpholog” of the Common Implementation Strategy of the Water Framework Directive. The key aim of the workshop was information exchange on the following:

1. Options and tools of European States in order to implement measures for the improvement and achievement of GES or GEP (a. Legal tools and legal requirements; b. Technical standards and requirements; c. Incentives)

2. Strategic planning tools on the catchment scale for the designation of “appropriate”, “less appropriate” and “not appropriate” areas for new hydropower plants.

3. Approaches for the implementation of WFD Article 4.7.
