Analysis and synthesis report "overview of participatory planning processes in Europe”

The purpose of this result was to provide a good overview and synthesis of experiences recorded in the nine national experience and background studies. The synthesis report identifies historical trends; common features and cultural differences regarding public participation in river basin management planning that exist across Europe.

It is expected that the insights communicated within this report will be a useful aid for the case studies, and will provide important points to include within the guidance handbook of the HarmoniCOP project.

It also provides a good overview, organising and highlighting key necessary conditions for social learning and provides important considerations for the implementation of the WFD. Applying such knowledge and experience is fundamental for identifying clearer paths towards integrated and participatory river basin management planning in the long term.
