The Water Framework Directive provides a European policy basis for water management and the elaboration in river basins. It prescribes the development of river basin management plans. The development of these plans increasingly needs high quality computer based tools (ICT tools), including tools for socio-economic analysis and stakeholder participation. Though many tools have been developed, there is no clear and complete overview on what is available and which tools to use in which situations. HarmoniCA will establish a forum for unambiguous communication and discussion concerning the use and development of all tools relevant to the implementation at the WFD. In six work packages key aspects of integrated modelling will be considered in close collaboration with the modelling community, the policy makers and the users.
