Objectives and actions

This project aims at finding the best available measures to improve surface water, sediments and groundwater.

To reach this overall aim, five objectives were defined:

  1. Improving the ecological status of surface water bodies based on river ecosystem development and biodiversity enhancement;
  2. Improving the ecological status of surface water bodies based on sediment management;
  3. Sustainable water resources management for groundwater bodies;
  4. Assessing the implementation of the WFD programmes of measures;
  5. Raising public awareness.


The main actions consist of:

  • the implementation and monitoring of a number of transnational river ecosystem development measures and the elabaration of a transnational inventory on priority fish migration barriers;
  • the transboundary monitoring of sediment loads in order to feed a sediment delivery model and the construction of a sediment pond;
  • the transboundary monitoring and modelling of 2 transboundary groundwater systems as a basis for a joint declaration on transboundary groundwater management;
  • the development of a common set of indicators on the level of the Scheldt IRBD to assess the execution of programmes of measures, including costs, effects and benefits of measures;
  • the dissemination of information on transboundary integrated water management in the Scheldt IRBD by means of events, website, newsletters, information packages.
