Peer to peer Project

Welcome to the peer-to-peer process website.

The aim of the project is to set up a simple, voluntary and targeted system to allow mutual learning between Competent Authorities (the peers) about Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Floods Directive (FD) implementation.

This project follows the “peer review mechanism” which successful first phase took place from 2014 to the end of 2016. After the favourable feedback expressed at the SCG meeting on 27 October 2016, the European Commission has launched a new 2-year phase renamed peer-to-peer process support for the improvement of WFD and FD.

This is aimed as a stimulating instrument for developing collaborative thinking and exchanging expertise between River Basin Managment Plan (RBMP) and Floods River Managment Plan (FRMP) developers in EU basins!

This portal make available comprehensively the information linked to the project to enable peers to organize fruitful exchanges that can take the form of peer-to-peer exchange mission or webinar.
