The International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) works to ensure the sustainable and equitable use of waters and freshwater resources in the Danube River Basin. in 2000, its contracting parties nominated the ICPDR as the platform for the implementation of all transboundary aspects of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). Since 2007, ICPDR is responsible for coordinating the implementation of the EU Floods Directive in the Danube River Basin.
ICPDR ensures that the project activities as well as its outputs are in line with the policies, management objectives and technical goals of its contracting parties as well as the provisions of the EU Floods Directive. ICPDR contributes with valuable technical and political feedback.
