 Europe-INBO 2013 in Plovdiv (Bulgarie)
This year, in the context of preparation of the second WFD river basin management plans, which include a review of the monitoring networks and programmes, a workshop dedicated to monitoring was organized on 13 November 2013 back-to-back with the conference. Its primary objective was to compare practices and practical experiences of monitoring, and promote the exchange of questions and solutions.
The EUROPE-INBO Declaration of Plovdiv
The "EUROPE-INBO 2013" conference was an important new step not only to review the implementation of the first cycle of river basin management plans, but also to formulate sound proposals to improve WFD implementation in the next cycles, especially for the 2015-2021 period. The recommendations presented in the Plovdiv Declaration are also intended to feed the preparatory work of the 7th World Water Forum, which began in May 2013.
It was also an opportunity to practice a new type of workshop in EUROPE-INBO to share technical experience and formulate practical recommendations to be reproduced and sustained.
The Final Declaration, photographs and all papers are published on the website: www.inbo-news.org
