Workshop report on the international stakeholder meeting concerning the WFD

On 10 and 11 March 2003, a stakeholder meeting was organised in Leuven to involve stakeholders. It combined a general project meeting with Work Package team meetings for WP 2, 3, 4 and 5. The purpose of the general project meetings was as follows:
- To give the stakeholders the opportunity to get in-depth insight in the HarmoniCOP project: origins, objectives and internal logic, collaborating institutes and experts, main questions and expected deliverables
- To “tune” and clarify expectations between the project team and the stakeholders group
- To get feedback on and contributions to the actual project functioning and the inception report
- To apply social learning mechanisms and practise social learning between project experts and stakeholders

The report summarises the discussions during the stakeholder meetings. Attention is paid to the tuning of expectations, the discussion on the different WPs, the evaluation of the first day, the fieldtrip to the Dijle catchments, the appreciative inquiry exercise, and the general evaluation and suggestions of the project participants. The purpose of the report is to provide a record of the discussions and provide feedback to the stakeholders.
