Document The European Water Framework Directive and sustainable water management

Presented during the 3rd International Yellow River Forum (IYRF) on sustainable water resources management and Delta Ecosystem Maintenance, held in Dongying (Shandong), Chinca in October 16-19, 2007.

The improvement in water management requires better information and knowledge on surface and groundwater and on their associated ecosystems. These tasks need time and resources, and the lack of data and knowledge on the underlying biophysical processes in the use of water resources, precludes and adequate and sustainable management. This knowledge is essential for designing reasonable control measures, such as the ones required by the Water Framework Directive.
