Background information:

River Basin Management Plan (RBMP): 1 planning document, 2 main steps: a RBMP is a planning document that has to be developed first and then updated every 6 years (planning cycle). Developing this guiding document involves two general steps: first the diagnosis (how does the river basin work and what is causing problems or risks?) and then the programme of measures (how can we improve it?). The Dnipro river basin management plan is now in the first phase of its development (the diagnosis). Public and stakeholder consultations are organised throughout the RBMP development process: they ensure public awareness of working plan outcomes and the joint development of solutions to problems. Public comments and opinions are actively sought via consultation mechanisms (oral such as consultation meetings, or written through surveys and feedbacks).
