Victorian Reading Group – How effective is the EU Water Framework Directive?

26/03/2015 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am

Just how effective is the EU Water Framework Directive?

This reading group topic follows on from our February session on the effectiveness of Victorian Catchment Managment Authorities. We turn our attention to the effectiveness of the EU Water Framework Directive 15 years following the adoption of this landmark requirement for waterway management accross the EU.  

We have two short reports for this session:

  • The European Commission’s 2012 Implementation Report . This is the official periodic report required under the Water Framework Directive; and,  
  • The European Environmental Bureau’s fifth snapshot report, produced by a coalition of over 140 European NGOs. 

Join us for an interesting discussion on the effectiveness of this important reform and the lessons for the Victorian context.

Hope to see you there!
