Finalized second phase of the Management Plans development!

For each of seven pilots the draft of the Management Plan is compiled meaning that the second phase (out of three phases) has been finalized. As result, (i) existing local conditions are described, (ii) goals/targets to be achieved are defined, (iii) legal frameworks are compiled and (iv) needed measures to achieve goals/targets are defined. All these issues were discussed on RIG local meetings and on transnational workshops with project partners. All partners shared their practical experiences and gave suggestions.

In total five trainings were organized with project partners, associated partners, responsible authorities and stakeholders in order to properly develop and implement Management Plans. The goal of the training sessions was to help the administration to act more effectively on the existing groundwater contamination problems.

Regional implementation groups for each of seven pilots meet regularly. These groups consist of local & regional responsible authorities for groundwater and soil, as well as relevant stakeholders. Consequently, the responsible administrative bodies are duly involved in the preparation of the Management Plans and are fully in position to implement the developed strategies considering the provided adequate training and guidelines.
