Integrated river basin management
In many countries, including France, the river basin is now considered the pertinent level for planning development schemes in light of both hydrographic and human requirements. The European Union enshrined this management principle in its Water Framework Directive (WFD). Artelia is working with many water authorities to help them apply regulatory requirements, in particular the WFD across Europe, draw up river basin management plans, conduct measurement programmes and technical, statutory and economic evaluations of projects, and assess their environmental and social impacts. Artelia also helps river basin authorities to maintain the morphological and ecological balance of river corridors.
