The ultimate goal of the ICPDR is to implement the Danube River Protection Convention: the ICPDR has also been nominated as the platform for the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. Its ambitious mission is to promote and coordinate sustainable and equitable water management, including conservation, improvement and rational use of waters for the benefit of the Danube River Basin countries and their people. The ICPDR pursues its mission by making recommendations for the improvement of water quality, developing mechanisms for flood and accident control, agreeing on standards for emissions, assuring that these are reflected in the Contracting Parties’ national legislations and applied in their policies.
