Introduction

Public participation is one of the core principles in sustainable water management as required by the WFD and FASRB. Two public participation related lines of activities have been carried out in the framework of preparation of the Sava RBM Plan:

  1. Activities in the preparation of the Sava RBMP itself, aiming at active public participation and facilitating input by stakeholders to secure enhanced quality of the Plan using the knowledge they hold. Specific outcomes and conclusions from the implemented activities have been incorporated in the current Sava RBMP and the proposed Programme of Measures.
  2. Activities for the establishment of a mechanism to secure public participation in the monitoring of implementation of the Sava RBM Plan under development, as well as its review and updating / preparation of the next RBMPs.
