River basin management

Collective term for the measures employed to manage bodies of water such that they serve the common good. The aim is to prevent avoidable impairments of their ecological function. In addition, the water balance of terrestrial ecosystems and wetlands directly dependent on these water bodies must be protected, such that sustainable development is ensured. In this context, planning areas are river basin districts, which include the ->basins themselves as well as the groundwater and coastal waters.
