Following the transposition of the Water Framework Directive, governance of water resources can be guaranteed by strengthening the management and planning capacities of local authorities.
Water Framework Directive
The Water Framework Directive (WFD, 2000/60/ EC) encourages participatory processes, aimed at settling conflict situations, and making decisions oriented towards sustainable development instead of emergency-driven decisions.
In line with the choice made at European level by the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC and with the innovative approach introduced into the Italian legal system by the transposition of the directive, Line 6 sets out to go beyond the historic tripartite management of water protection, flood protection and water resources and, more generally, management of river basins. It therefore aims to plan and implement measures with a less sectoral and more targeted approach.
