New Designs & Summary Brochures for the ICPDR's Two Management Plan Updates

After the finalisation of the ICPDR's updated Management Plans at the end of 2021, the ICPDR is proud to present a newly redesigned set of these important documents.

These documents have been created with improved digital functions, such as clickable links and navigable tables of contents, while still maximising utility as a paper publication.

In addition to the full length texts of both the DRBMP & DFRMP Updates 2021, two derivative brochures that condense and summarise the material of these plans into 28-page and 24-page brochures respectively, have also been produced, offering the general public an easy way to understand the contents and implications and highlighting the main messages of the two plans.

These brochures comprise a digested and simplified version of the plans, highlighting the most important aims and visions for the future laid out in these important documents, paving the way forward for a cleaner, healthier, and safer Danube River Basin.

The documents can be freely downloaded in both high and low resolution below.



  • » River Basin Management
    The best way to protect and manage water is by close international co-operation between all the countries within the river basin – bringing together all interests upstream and downstream. All countries of the European Union are using a river basin approach for water management since the adoption of the EU Water Framework Directive.
  • » Flood Risk Management
    In response to the danger of flooding, the ICPDR is engaged in a range of activities that aim to manage flood risks in a sustainable way.
  • » EU Water Framework Directive
    Directive 2000/60/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2000 establishing a framework for Community action in the field of water policy
  • » Implementation of the EU Floods Directive
    In September 2007 a Directive of the European parliament and of the Council on the assessment and management of flood risks (EU Floods Directive, FD) was adopted by the European Council. The aim of the Directive is to reduce and manage the risks that floods pose to human health, the environment, cultural heritage and economic activity.
