The most important documents reflecting the response on freshwater pressures and impacts are river basin management plans, programmes of measures and monitoring programmes implemented in line with requirements of the Water Framework Directive. They will be published for the first planning cycle in 2009 and will be legally binding. Other examples of the country’s response are the adoption of the Code of Good Agricultural Practice, the protection of waters against pollution caused by nitrates from agricultural sources, a programme to decrease pollution caused by certain dangerous substances, the plan for the public water supply and sewerage system development, etc.


The country assessments are the sole responsibility of the EEA member and cooperating countries supported by the EEA through guidance, translation and editing.
