Title: The Elbe River Basin District: Integrated Cross Border Management in Practice
Publication Date: March 2012
Team: Cormac Walsh
Funding: CroSPlaN Initiative, an INTERREG IVA funded-project which is being administered by the SEUPB.
Summary: This detailed case study builds on the ICLRD’s recent report on river basin management and its (inter)relationship with spatial planning policy and practice. This study focuses on the States of Berlin and Brandenburg in Germany and the Elbe International River Basin District (IRBD). It demonstrates how one catchment area applied both regulatory and non-regulatory measures to integrate water quality improvements with regional land-use plans. This document presents many insights of relevance to International River Basin Districts, and Water Framework Directive implementation on the island of Ireland more broadly.
