Consultation on the Significant Water Management Issues in preparation for Malta’s 3rd River Basin Management Plan
Under the implementation process of the EU’s Water Framework Directive (WFD), Malta is required to prepare its 3rd River Basin Management Plan (3rd RBMP) for the third cycle of implementation of the WFD by the 22nd March 2022. The River Basin Management Plan provides a status assessment of inland and coastal waters in the Maltese islands, and identifies the measures necessary to enable the progressive achievement of good status conditions in these water bodies.
The process leading to the formulation of this management plan includes an extensive stakeholder consultation process, in order to ensure that this plan takes due consideration of the stakeholders’ expectations for Malta’s national water environment. The WFD requires a specific consultation exercise focusing on the identification of Significant Water Management Issues in preparation for the development of the draft 3rd RBMP.
This consultation exercise will be open for a period of six months and the main consultation tool for this exercise is an online questionnaire available within the report identifying the key Significant Water Management Issues, which report is available for download here. Stakeholders are encouraged to read and submit their feedback on the identified issues online. The direct link to the online questionnaire is also being made available here.
Alternatively if you are unable to access the online questionnaire, you can send your feedback by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to EWA at:
